Is Fanhua under- or over-valued?

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

Fanhua's P/E ratio

Fanhua's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Fanhua shares trade at around 17x 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.

Fanhua's EBITDA

Fanhua's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $319.4 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Fanhua's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Fanhua shares

There are currently 2.9 million Fanhua shares held short by investors – that's known as Fanhua's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% down from 2.9 million last month.

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

Fanhua's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fanhua's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fanhua shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fanhua shares traded daily (recently around 55652.260919761). Fanhua's SIR currently stands at 51.97. In other words for every 100,000 Fanhua shares traded daily on the market, roughly 51970 shares are currently held short.

However Fanhua's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fanhua shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fanhua shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fanhua's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fanhua shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fanhua shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Fanhua.

Fanhua share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.01% of net profits

Recently Fanhua has paid out, on average, around 1.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fanhua shareholders could enjoy a 7.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fanhua's case, that would currently equate to about $6.529 per share.

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

Fanhua's most recent dividend payout was on 14 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Fanhua share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Fanhua's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.578 up to $21.8339. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FANH.US volatility(beta: 0.59)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 Fanhua's is 0.5946. This would suggest that Fanhua's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
