Is Huron Consulting Group under- or over-valued?

In this case Huron Consulting Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Huron Consulting Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0151% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Huron Consulting Group shares, roughly 15 shares are currently held short).
