Clear Secure's P/E ratio

Clear Secure's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 345x. In other words, Clear Secure shares trade at around 345x recent earnings.

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.

However, Clear Secure's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the software-application industry or those of similar companies.

Shorting Clear Secure shares

There are currently 925,034 Clear Secure shares held short by investors – that's known as Clear Secure's "short interest". This figure is 64.9% up from 560,893 last month.

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

Clear Secure's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Clear Secure's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Clear Secure shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Clear Secure shares traded daily (recently around 486860). Clear Secure's SIR currently stands at 1.9. In other words for every 100,000 Clear Secure shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1900 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Clear Secure's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Clear Secure's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Clear Secure shares, or, against the total number of tradable Clear Secure shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Clear Secure's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Clear Secure shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Clear Secure shares, roughly 17 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 Clear Secure.
