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 Builders FirstSource's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 12.3 million Builders FirstSource shares held short by investors – that's known as Builders FirstSource's "short interest". This figure is 2.9% down from 12.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Builders FirstSource shares can be evaluated.
Builders FirstSource's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Builders FirstSource shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Builders FirstSource shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). Builders FirstSource's SIR currently stands at 4.33. In other words for every 100,000 Builders FirstSource shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4330 shares are currently held short.
However Builders FirstSource's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Builders FirstSource shares, or, against the total number of tradable Builders FirstSource shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Builders FirstSource's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Builders FirstSource shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1206% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Builders FirstSource shares, roughly 121 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 Builders FirstSource.
