Is China Natural Resources under- or over-valued?

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

China Natural Resources's P/E ratio

China Natural Resources's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, China Natural Resources shares trade at around 10x 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.

Shorting China Natural Resources shares

There are currently 76,390 China Natural Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as China Natural Resources's "short interest". This figure is 7.2% up from 71,234 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting China Natural Resources shares can be evaluated.

China Natural Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

China Natural Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Natural Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Natural Resources shares traded daily (recently around 181880.95238095). China Natural Resources's SIR currently stands at 0.42. In other words for every 100,000 China Natural Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 420 shares are currently held short.

However China Natural Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of China Natural Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable China Natural Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case China Natural Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 China Natural Resources shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0057% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable China Natural Resources shares, roughly 6 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 Natural Resources.

Have China Natural Resources's shares ever split?

China Natural Resources's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 13 June 1999. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your China Natural Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for China Natural Resources shares which in turn could have impacted China Natural Resources's share price.

China Natural Resources share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, China Natural Resources's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.02 up to $3.14. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CHNR.US volatility(beta: 1.08)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while China Natural Resources's is 1.0783. This would suggest that China Natural Resources's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
