Is Dorman Products 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 Dorman Products'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 472,137 Dorman Products shares held short by investors – that's known as Dorman Products's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% up from 455,927 last month.

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

Dorman Products's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dorman Products's SIR currently stands at 4.69. In other words for every 100,000 Dorman Products shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4690 shares are currently held short.

However Dorman Products's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dorman Products shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dorman Products shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dorman Products's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dorman Products shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0189% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dorman Products shares, roughly 19 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 Dorman Products.
