Is Pinduoduo under- or over-valued?

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

Pinduoduo's PEG ratio

Pinduoduo's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 22.1361. 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 Pinduoduo's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Pinduoduo shares

There are currently 15.9 million Pinduoduo shares held short by investors – that's known as Pinduoduo's "short interest". This figure is 45.4% down from 29.1 million last month.

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

Pinduoduo's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Pinduoduo's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pinduoduo shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pinduoduo shares traded daily (recently around 6.2 million). Pinduoduo's SIR currently stands at 2.56. In other words for every 100,000 Pinduoduo shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2560 shares are currently held short.

However Pinduoduo's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pinduoduo shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pinduoduo shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pinduoduo's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pinduoduo shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pinduoduo 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 Pinduoduo.

Pinduoduo share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Pinduoduo's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.2 up to $212.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PDD.US volatility(beta: 1.62)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Pinduoduo's is 1.6225. This would suggest that Pinduoduo's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
