Is Charter Communications under- or over-valued?

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 Charter Communications'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 Charter Communications shares

There are currently 7.5 million Charter Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Charter Communications's "short interest". This figure is 14.2% down from 8.7 million last month.

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

Charter Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Charter Communications's SIR currently stands at 8.78. In other words for every 100,000 Charter Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8780 shares are currently held short.

However Charter Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Charter Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Charter Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Charter Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Charter Communications shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0631% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Charter Communications shares, roughly 63 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 Charter Communications.
