Is Kinsale Capital Group under- or over-valued?

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Kinsale Capital Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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

Kinsale Capital Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kinsale Capital Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kinsale Capital Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kinsale Capital Group shares traded daily (recently around 97541.945288754). Kinsale Capital Group's SIR currently stands at 6.58. In other words for every 100,000 Kinsale Capital Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6580 shares are currently held short.

However Kinsale Capital Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kinsale Capital Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kinsale Capital Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kinsale Capital Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kinsale Capital Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0298% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kinsale Capital Group shares, roughly 30 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Kinsale Capital Group.
