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 16x. In other words, HUYA shares trade at around 16x 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.

HUYA's PEG ratio

HUYA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8601. 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 HUYA's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


HUYA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $861.8 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 11.5 million HUYA shares held short by investors – that's known as HUYA's "short interest". This figure is 19% down from 14.2 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 3.7. In other words for every 100,000 HUYA shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3700 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 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HUYA shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.1411% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HUYA shares, roughly 141 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 HUYA.
