Is The9 under- or over-valued?

Valuing The9 stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of The9's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

The9's P/E ratio

The9's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, The9 shares trade at around 1x 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.

Shorting The9 shares

There are currently 1.0 million The9 shares held short by investors – that's known as The9's "short interest". This figure is 19.7% up from 867,835 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The9 shares can be evaluated.

The9's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The9's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The9 shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The9 shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). The9's SIR currently stands at 0.66. In other words for every 100,000 The9 shares traded daily on the market, roughly 660 shares are currently held short.

However The9's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The9 shares, or, against the total number of tradable The9 shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The9's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The9 shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1255% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The9 shares, roughly 126 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 The9.

The9 share dividends

We're not expecting The9 to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have The9's shares ever split?

The9's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 18 October 2020. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The9 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for The9 shares which in turn could have impacted The9's share price.

The9 share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, The9's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.04 up to $89.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NCTY.US volatility(beta: 1.19)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 The9's is 1.1904. This would suggest that The9'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).
