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 Fuel Tech shares

There are currently 925,486 Fuel Tech shares held short by investors – that's known as Fuel Tech's "short interest". This figure is 11% down from 1.0 million last month.

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

Fuel Tech's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fuel Tech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fuel Tech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fuel Tech shares traded daily (recently around 430458.60465116). Fuel Tech's SIR currently stands at 2.15. In other words for every 100,000 Fuel Tech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2150 shares are currently held short.

However Fuel Tech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fuel Tech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fuel Tech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fuel Tech's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fuel Tech shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0398% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fuel Tech shares, roughly 40 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 Fuel Tech.
