Is Air Transport Services Group under- or over-valued?

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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Air Transport Services 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.

Shorting Air Transport Services Group shares

There are currently 1.2 million Air Transport Services Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Air Transport Services Group's "short interest". This figure is 14.1% down from 1.5 million last month.

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

Air Transport Services Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Air Transport Services Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Air Transport Services Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Air Transport Services Group shares traded daily (recently around 760862.19512195). Air Transport Services Group's SIR currently stands at 1.64. In other words for every 100,000 Air Transport Services Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1640 shares are currently held short.

However Air Transport Services Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Air Transport Services Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Air Transport Services Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Air Transport Services Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Air Transport Services Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0216% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Air Transport Services Group shares, roughly 22 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 Air Transport Services Group.
