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 Iron Mountain Incorporated shares

There are currently 28.9 million Iron Mountain Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as Iron Mountain Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% up from 27.7 million last month.

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

Iron Mountain Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Iron Mountain Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Iron Mountain Incorporated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Iron Mountain Incorporated shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Iron Mountain Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 17.65. In other words for every 100,000 Iron Mountain Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17650 shares are currently held short.

However Iron Mountain Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Iron Mountain Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Iron Mountain Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Iron Mountain Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Iron Mountain Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1011% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Iron Mountain Incorporated shares, roughly 101 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Iron Mountain Incorporated.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Iron Mountain Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 7.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Iron Mountain Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Iron Mountain Incorporated's share price.
