Is HUYA under- or over-valued?

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

HUYA's P/E ratio

HUYA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, HUYA shares trade at around 32x 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.


HUYA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $827.8 million.

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

Shorting HUYA shares

There are currently 26.5 million HUYA shares held short by investors – that's known as HUYA's "short interest". This figure is 0% down from 26.5 million last month.

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

HUYA's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

HUYA's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HUYA shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HUYA shares traded daily (recently around 3.1 million). HUYA's SIR currently stands at 8.48. In other words for every 100,000 HUYA shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8480 shares are currently held short.

However HUYA's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HUYA shares, or, against the total number of tradable HUYA shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HUYA's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HUYA shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HUYA shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against HUYA.
