Is China Online Education Group under- or over-valued?

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

China Online Education Group's P/E ratio

China Online Education Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 53x. In other words, China Online Education Group shares trade at around 53x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting China Online Education Group shares can be evaluated.

China Online Education Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In this case China Online Education Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 China Online Education Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable China Online Education Group shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).
