Is Leju under- or over-valued?

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

Leju's P/E ratio

Leju's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Leju shares trade at around 24x 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.


Leju's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$37.5 million.

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

Shorting Leju shares

There are currently 265,334 Leju shares held short by investors – that's known as Leju's "short interest". This figure is 17.4% down from 321,118 last month.

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

Leju's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Leju's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Leju shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Leju shares traded daily (recently around 115866.37554585). Leju's SIR currently stands at 2.29. In other words for every 100,000 Leju shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2290 shares are currently held short.

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

LEJU.US volatility(beta: 1.05)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Leju's is 1.0544. This would suggest that Leju's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
