Is Futu under- or over-valued?

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

Futu's P/E ratio

Futu's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, Futu shares trade at around 40x 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.

Shorting Futu shares

There are currently 5.1 million Futu shares held short by investors – that's known as Futu's "short interest". This figure is 11.2% up from 4.6 million last month.

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

Futu's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Futu's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Futu shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Futu shares traded daily (recently around 6.0 million). Futu's SIR currently stands at 0.86. In other words for every 100,000 Futu shares traded daily on the market, roughly 860 shares are currently held short.

However Futu's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Futu shares, or, against the total number of tradable Futu shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Futu's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Futu shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0776% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Futu shares, roughly 78 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 Futu.

Futu share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Futu's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.15 up to $202.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FUTU.US volatility(beta: 1.23)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 Futu's is 1.2275. This would suggest that Futu's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
