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.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lakeland Industries shares can be evaluated.

Lakeland Industries's SIR currently stands at 3.62. In other words for every 100,000 Lakeland Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3620 shares are currently held short.

However Lakeland Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lakeland Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lakeland Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lakeland Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lakeland Industries shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.1571% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lakeland Industries shares, roughly 157 shares are currently held short).
