Is Carriage Services under- or over-valued?

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 Carriage Services'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 a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Carriage Services shares can be evaluated.

Carriage Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Carriage Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Carriage Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Carriage Services shares traded daily (recently around 174679.84790875). Carriage Services's SIR currently stands at 2.63. In other words for every 100,000 Carriage Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2630 shares are currently held short.

However Carriage Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Carriage Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Carriage Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Carriage Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Carriage Services shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0283% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Carriage Services shares, roughly 28 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 Carriage Services.
