Is Duke Energy Corporation 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 Duke Energy Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Duke Energy Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.56. In other words for every 100,000 Duke Energy Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2560 shares are currently held short.
However Duke Energy Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Duke Energy Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Duke Energy Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Duke Energy Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Duke Energy Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0098% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Duke Energy Corporation shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).
