Valuing NetEase stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NetEase's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NetEase's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, NetEase shares trade at around 17x 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.
NetEase's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4932. 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 NetEase's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 7.5 million NetEase shares held short by investors – that's known as NetEase's "short interest". This figure is 3.4% down from 7.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NetEase shares can be evaluated.
NetEase's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NetEase shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NetEase shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). NetEase's SIR currently stands at 3.28. In other words for every 100,000 NetEase shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3280 shares are currently held short.
However NetEase's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NetEase shares, or, against the total number of tradable NetEase shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NetEase's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NetEase shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NetEase 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 NetEase.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like NetEase.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 17.05
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and NetEase's overall score of 17.05 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 16th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like NetEase is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 0.86/100
NetEase's environmental score of 0.86 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NetEase is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 7.49/100
NetEase's social score of 7.49 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NetEase is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 7.42/100
NetEase's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that NetEase is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. NetEase scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that NetEase has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||17.05|
|Total ESG percentile||15.54|
|Environmental score percentile||1|
|Social score percentile||1|
|Governance score percentile||1|
|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 63.07% of net profits
Recently NetEase has paid out, on average, around 63.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NetEase shareholders could enjoy a 0.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NetEase's case, that would currently equate to about $1.566 per share.
NetEase's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
NetEase's most recent dividend payout was on 26 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
NetEase's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 2 October 2020. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NetEase shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NetEase shares which in turn could have impacted NetEase's share price.
Over the last 12 months, NetEase's shares have ranged in value from as little as $51.9937 up to $134.33. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while NetEase's is 0.4792. This would suggest that NetEase's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
