Is ZTO Express Cayman under- or over-valued?

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

ZTO Express Cayman's P/E ratio

ZTO Express Cayman's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, ZTO Express Cayman shares trade at around 36x 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.

ZTO Express Cayman's PEG ratio

ZTO Express Cayman's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 23.96. 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 ZTO Express Cayman's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting ZTO Express Cayman shares

There are currently 14.3 million ZTO Express Cayman shares held short by investors – that's known as ZTO Express Cayman's "short interest". This figure is 9.6% down from 15.9 million last month.

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

ZTO Express Cayman's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ZTO Express Cayman's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ZTO Express Cayman shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ZTO Express Cayman shares traded daily (recently around 3.5 million). ZTO Express Cayman's SIR currently stands at 4.15. In other words for every 100,000 ZTO Express Cayman shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4150 shares are currently held short.

However ZTO Express Cayman's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ZTO Express Cayman shares, or, against the total number of tradable ZTO Express Cayman shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ZTO Express Cayman's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ZTO Express Cayman shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ZTO Express Cayman shares, roughly 0 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 ZTO Express Cayman.
