Is KE under- or over-valued?

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

KE's P/E ratio

KE's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 50x. In other words, KE shares trade at around 50x 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.


KE's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.8 billion.

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

Shorting KE shares

There are currently 18.0 million KE shares held short by investors – that's known as KE's "short interest". This figure is 9.3% up from 16.5 million last month.

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

KE's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

KE's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of KE shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of KE shares traded daily (recently around 14.1 million). KE's SIR currently stands at 1.28. In other words for every 100,000 KE shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1280 shares are currently held short.

However KE's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of KE shares, or, against the total number of tradable KE shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case KE's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 KE shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0344% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable KE shares, roughly 34 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 KE.
