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 Boot Barn'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 Boot Barn shares

There are currently 3.2 million Boot Barn shares held short by investors – that's known as Boot Barn's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% down from 3.6 million last month.

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

Boot Barn's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Boot Barn's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Boot Barn shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Boot Barn shares traded daily (recently around 455691.42053446). Boot Barn's SIR currently stands at 7.11. In other words for every 100,000 Boot Barn shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7110 shares are currently held short.

However Boot Barn's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Boot Barn shares, or, against the total number of tradable Boot Barn shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Boot Barn's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Boot Barn shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1327% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Boot Barn shares, roughly 133 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Boot Barn.

However, indirectly, the new 96% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Boot Barn shares which in turn could have impacted Boot Barn's share price.
