Is Kandi under- or over-valued?

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

Kandi's P/E ratio

Kandi's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Kandi shares trade at around 14x 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.

Kandi's EBITDA

Kandi's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.3 million.

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

Shorting Kandi shares

There are currently 10.8 million Kandi shares held short by investors – that's known as Kandi's "short interest". This figure is 2% down from 11.1 million last month.

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

Kandi's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kandi's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kandi shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kandi shares traded daily (recently around 846042.51170047). Kandi's SIR currently stands at 12.82. In other words for every 100,000 Kandi shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12820 shares are currently held short.

However Kandi's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kandi shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kandi shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kandi's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kandi shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1768% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kandi shares, roughly 177 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Kandi.

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

Kandi share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kandi's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.25 up to $17.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KNDI.US volatility(beta: 2.06)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 Kandi's is 2.0577. This would suggest that Kandi's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
