Is Knight-Swift Transportation under- or over-valued?

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.

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

Shorting Knight-Swift Transportation shares

There are currently 4.8 million Knight-Swift Transportation shares held short by investors – that's known as Knight-Swift Transportation's "short interest". This figure is 9.4% up from 4.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Knight-Swift Transportation shares can be evaluated.

Knight-Swift Transportation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Knight-Swift Transportation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Knight-Swift Transportation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Knight-Swift Transportation shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Knight-Swift Transportation's SIR currently stands at 2.38. In other words for every 100,000 Knight-Swift Transportation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2380 shares are currently held short.

However Knight-Swift Transportation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Knight-Swift Transportation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Knight-Swift Transportation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Knight-Swift Transportation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Knight-Swift Transportation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0297% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Knight-Swift Transportation shares, roughly 30 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 Knight-Swift Transportation.
