Is Ducommun Incorporated 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 Ducommun Incorporated'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 Ducommun Incorporated shares

There are currently 172,466 Ducommun Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as Ducommun Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 0.1% down from 172,700 last month.

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

Ducommun Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ducommun Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 4.19. In other words for every 100,000 Ducommun Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4190 shares are currently held short.

However Ducommun Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ducommun Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ducommun Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ducommun Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ducommun Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0159% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ducommun Incorporated shares, roughly 16 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 Ducommun Incorporated.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ducommun Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Ducommun Incorporated's share price.
