Members of Dragon Undervalued Index represent deeply undervalued Chinese companies trading on U.S. exchanges. There are many parameters China Vesting uses to decide what companies are eligible to be classified as a Dragon. The most important being: A member company must possess a market value that is less than comparables. The most common metric China Vesting will use is price to earnings (P/E) and enterprise value to earnings (EV/E). The market value must be significantly less to the point where the market value of the public company is less than or equal to what the company is worth as a private company.
