Is SINA Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

SINA Corporation's P/E ratio

SINA Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, SINA Corporation shares trade at around 20x 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.

SINA Corporation's EBITDA

SINA Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $439.1 million.

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

Shorting SINA Corporation shares

There are currently 5.7 million SINA Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as SINA Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.1% down from 6.1 million last month.

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

SINA Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SINA Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SINA Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SINA Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 330093.20951828). SINA Corporation's SIR currently stands at 17.23. In other words for every 100,000 SINA Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17230 shares are currently held short.

However SINA Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SINA Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable SINA Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SINA Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SINA Corporation shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1111% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SINA Corporation shares, roughly 111 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 SINA Corporation.
