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.

Shorting Epsilon Energy shares

There are currently 5,296 Epsilon Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Epsilon Energy's "short interest". This figure is 20.6% up from 4,392 last month.

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

Epsilon Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Epsilon Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Epsilon Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Epsilon Energy shares traded daily (recently around 31152.941176471). Epsilon Energy's SIR currently stands at 0.17. In other words for every 100,000 Epsilon Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 170 shares are currently held short.

However Epsilon Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Epsilon Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Epsilon Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Epsilon Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Epsilon Energy shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0007% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Epsilon Energy shares, roughly 1 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 Epsilon Energy.

We're not expecting Epsilon Energy to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Epsilon Energy's shares ever split?

Epsilon Energy's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 24 December 2018. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Epsilon Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Epsilon Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Epsilon Energy's share price.

Epsilon Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Epsilon Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.3168 up to $4.44. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EPSN.US volatility(beta: 0.53)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Epsilon Energy's is 0.5331. This would suggest that Epsilon Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
