Valuing China Southern Airlines Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of China Southern Airlines Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
China Southern Airlines Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, China Southern Airlines Company shares trade at around 16x 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 Southern Airlines Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.72. 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 Southern Airlines Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 67,858 China Southern Airlines Company shares held short by investors – that's known as China Southern Airlines Company's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 67,115 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting China Southern Airlines Company shares can be evaluated.
China Southern Airlines Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Southern Airlines Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Southern Airlines Company shares traded daily (recently around 35159.585492228). China Southern Airlines Company's SIR currently stands at 1.93. In other words for every 100,000 China Southern Airlines Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1930 shares are currently held short.
However China Southern Airlines Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of China Southern Airlines Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable China Southern Airlines Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case China Southern Airlines Company's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 China Southern Airlines Company shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable China Southern Airlines Company 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 Southern Airlines Company.

We're not expecting China Southern Airlines Company to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
China Southern Airlines Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 23 September 2008. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your China Southern Airlines Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for China Southern Airlines Company shares which in turn could have impacted China Southern Airlines Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, China Southern Airlines Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.45 up to $35.5997. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while China Southern Airlines Company's is 1.8821. This would suggest that China Southern Airlines Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
