Valuing China Eastern Airlines Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of China Eastern Airlines Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
China Eastern Airlines Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares trade at around 13x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
China Eastern Airlines Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7598. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into China Eastern Airlines Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 14,102 China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as China Eastern Airlines Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 21.8% down from 18,043 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares can be evaluated.
China Eastern Airlines Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 176275). China Eastern Airlines Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.08. In other words for every 100,000 China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 80 shares are currently held short.
However China Eastern Airlines Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case China Eastern Airlines Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against China Eastern Airlines Corporation.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted China Eastern Airlines Corporation's share price.
