Is China Yuchai International under- or over-valued?

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

China Yuchai International's P/E ratio

China Yuchai International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, China Yuchai International shares trade at around 5x 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 Yuchai International shares

There are currently 41,608 China Yuchai International shares held short by investors – that's known as China Yuchai International's "short interest". This figure is 41.8% down from 71,514 last month.

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

China Yuchai International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

China Yuchai International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Yuchai International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Yuchai International shares traded daily (recently around 36498.245614035). China Yuchai International's SIR currently stands at 1.14. In other words for every 100,000 China Yuchai International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1140 shares are currently held short.

However China Yuchai International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of China Yuchai International shares, or, against the total number of tradable China Yuchai International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case China Yuchai International's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 China Yuchai International shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0025% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable China Yuchai International shares, roughly 3 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 Yuchai International.

China Yuchai International share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.84% of net profits

Recently China Yuchai International has paid out, on average, around 22.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), China Yuchai International shareholders could enjoy a 5.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In China Yuchai International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.722 per share.

While China Yuchai International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that China Yuchai International is investing more in its future growth.

China Yuchai International's most recent dividend payout was on 31 July 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 July 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

China Yuchai International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, China Yuchai International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.3329 up to $20.49. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CYD.US volatility(beta: 1.28)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 Yuchai International's is 1.2791. This would suggest that China Yuchai International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
