Is China Eastern Airlines stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing China Eastern Airlines stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of China Eastern Airlines's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

China Eastern Airlines's PEG ratio

China Eastern Airlines's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.298. 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.

Have China Eastern Airlines's shares ever split?

China Eastern Airlines's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 August 2010. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your China Eastern Airlines shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for China Eastern Airlines shares which in turn could have impacted China Eastern Airlines's share price.

China Eastern Airlines share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, China Eastern Airlines's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.77 up to $21.63. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CEA.US volatility(beta: 0.78)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while China Eastern Airlines's is 0.7775. This would suggest that China Eastern Airlines's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
