Is Euroseas 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.

Shorting Euroseas shares

There are currently 27,677 Euroseas shares held short by investors – that's known as Euroseas's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% down from 27,736 last month.

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

Euroseas's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Euroseas's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Euroseas shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Euroseas shares traded daily (recently around 184513.33333333). Euroseas's SIR currently stands at 0.15. In other words for every 100,000 Euroseas shares traded daily on the market, roughly 150 shares are currently held short.

However Euroseas's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Euroseas shares, or, against the total number of tradable Euroseas shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Euroseas's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Euroseas shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0168% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Euroseas shares, roughly 17 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 Euroseas.

However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Euroseas shares which in turn could have impacted Euroseas's share price.
