Is Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd under- or over-valued?

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

Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd's P/E ratio

Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares trade at around 3x 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 Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares

There are currently 11,787 Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares held short by investors – that's known as Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% up from 11,386 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares can be evaluated.

Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares traded daily (recently around 49112.5). Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd's SIR currently stands at 0.24. In other words for every 100,000 Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares traded daily on the market, roughly 240 shares are currently held short.

However Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0104% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd shares, roughly 10 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 Fuwei Films Holdings CoLtd.
