Is Anika Therapeutics under- or over-valued?

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Anika Therapeutics'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 Anika Therapeutics shares

There are currently 1.8 million Anika Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Anika Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 11.8% down from 2.0 million last month.

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

Anika Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Anika Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Anika Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Anika Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 136994.46550417). Anika Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 13.19. In other words for every 100,000 Anika Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13190 shares are currently held short.

However Anika Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Anika Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Anika Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Anika Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Anika Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.151% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Anika Therapeutics shares, roughly 151 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 Anika Therapeutics.
