Is China Recycling Energy Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

China Recycling Energy Corporation's P/E ratio

China Recycling Energy 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 4x. In other words, China Recycling Energy Corporation shares trade at around 4x 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.

There are currently 35,492 China Recycling Energy Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as China Recycling Energy Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 44.7% up from 24,526 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting China Recycling Energy Corporation shares can be evaluated.

China Recycling Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

China Recycling Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Recycling Energy Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Recycling Energy Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 507028.57142857). China Recycling Energy Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.07. In other words for every 100,000 China Recycling Energy Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 70 shares are currently held short.

However China Recycling Energy Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of China Recycling Energy Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable China Recycling Energy Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case China Recycling Energy Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 China Recycling Energy Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0124% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable China Recycling Energy Corporation shares, roughly 12 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 Recycling Energy Corporation.
