Is Yalla Group under- or over-valued?

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

Yalla Group's P/E ratio

Yalla Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 65x. In other words, Yalla Group shares trade at around 65x 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.

However, Yalla Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the software-application industry or those of similar companies.

Yalla Group's PEG ratio

Yalla Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6403. 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 Yalla Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Yalla Group's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Yalla Group's EBITDA

Yalla Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $17.7 million.

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

To put Yalla Group's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

Shorting Yalla Group shares

There are currently 4.5 million Yalla Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Yalla Group's "short interest". This figure is 13.4% down from 5.2 million last month.

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

Yalla Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Yalla Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Yalla Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Yalla Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Yalla Group's SIR currently stands at 3.93. In other words for every 100,000 Yalla Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3930 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Yalla Group's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Yalla Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Yalla Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Yalla Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Yalla Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Yalla Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.1255% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Yalla Group 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 Yalla Group.
