Is Vipshop under- or over-valued?

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

Vipshop's P/E ratio

Vipshop's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Vipshop shares trade at around 11x 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.

Vipshop's PEG ratio

Vipshop's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 32.44. 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 Vipshop's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Vipshop's EBITDA

Vipshop's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $7.5 billion.

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

Shorting Vipshop shares

There are currently 20.9 million Vipshop shares held short by investors – that's known as Vipshop's "short interest". This figure is 7.8% down from 22.7 million last month.

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

Vipshop's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vipshop's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vipshop shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vipshop shares traded daily (recently around 12.7 million). Vipshop's SIR currently stands at 1.64. In other words for every 100,000 Vipshop shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1640 shares are currently held short.

However Vipshop's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vipshop shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vipshop shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vipshop's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vipshop shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0467% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vipshop shares, roughly 47 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 Vipshop.

Have Vipshop's shares ever split?

Vipshop's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 3 November 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares.
