Is Puyi under- or over-valued?

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

Puyi's P/E ratio

Puyi's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 46x. In other words, Puyi shares trade at around 46x 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.

Shorting Puyi shares

There are currently 45,079 Puyi shares held short by investors – that's known as Puyi's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% down from 45,578 last month.

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

Puyi's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Puyi's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Puyi shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Puyi shares traded daily (recently around 4201.211556384). Puyi's SIR currently stands at 10.73. In other words for every 100,000 Puyi shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10730 shares are currently held short.

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

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Puyi.
