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 Beyond Meat'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 Beyond Meat shares

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

Beyond Meat's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Beyond Meat's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Beyond Meat shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Beyond Meat shares traded daily (recently around 3.4 million). Beyond Meat's SIR currently stands at 2.05. In other words for every 100,000 Beyond Meat shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2050 shares are currently held short.

However Beyond Meat's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Beyond Meat shares, or, against the total number of tradable Beyond Meat shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Beyond Meat's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Beyond Meat shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1247% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Beyond Meat shares, roughly 125 shares are currently held short).
