Is Icahn Enterprises L-P under- or over-valued?

Valuing Icahn Enterprises L-P stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Icahn Enterprises L-P's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

In this case Icahn Enterprises L-P's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Icahn Enterprises L-P shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0124% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Icahn Enterprises L-P shares, roughly 12 shares are currently held short).
