Is Dycom Industries 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 Dycom Industries'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 Dycom Industries shares

There are currently 1.1 million Dycom Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Dycom Industries's "short interest". This figure is 13.2% up from 1.0 million last month.

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

Dycom Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dycom Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dycom Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dycom Industries shares traded daily (recently around 331953.75722543). Dycom Industries's SIR currently stands at 3.46. In other words for every 100,000 Dycom Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3460 shares are currently held short.

However Dycom Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dycom Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dycom Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dycom Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dycom Industries shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0519% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dycom Industries shares, roughly 52 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 Dycom Industries.

Have Dycom Industries's shares ever split?

Dycom Industries's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 February 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dycom Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dycom Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Dycom Industries's share price.

This would suggest that Dycom Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
