Is CNFinance under- or over-valued?

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

CNFinance's P/E ratio

CNFinance's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, CNFinance shares trade at around 5x 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.

CNFinance share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CNFinance's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.95 up to $6.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
