Is Guangshen Railway Company under- or over-valued?

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

Guangshen Railway Company's P/E ratio

Guangshen Railway 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 8x. In other words, Guangshen Railway Company shares trade at around 8x 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.

Guangshen Railway Company's PEG ratio

Guangshen Railway Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6401. 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 Guangshen Railway 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.

Shorting Guangshen Railway Company shares

There are currently 1,044 Guangshen Railway Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Guangshen Railway Company's "short interest". This figure is 16.9% down from 1,257 last month.

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

Guangshen Railway Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Guangshen Railway Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Guangshen Railway Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Guangshen Railway Company shares traded daily (recently around 13050). Guangshen Railway Company's SIR currently stands at 0.08. In other words for every 100,000 Guangshen Railway Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 80 shares are currently held short.

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