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 Atlantic Power Corporation'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 Atlantic Power Corporation shares

There are currently 1.5 million Atlantic Power Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Atlantic Power Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 37.3% up from 1.1 million last month.

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

Atlantic Power Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Atlantic Power Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Atlantic Power Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Atlantic Power Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Atlantic Power Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.96. In other words for every 100,000 Atlantic Power Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 960 shares are currently held short.

However Atlantic Power Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Atlantic Power Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Atlantic Power Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Atlantic Power Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Atlantic Power Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0173% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Atlantic Power Corporation shares, roughly 17 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 Atlantic Power Corporation.
