Is Lakeland Industries 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.

Lakeland Industries's PEG ratio

Lakeland Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.78. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Lakeland Industries'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 Lakeland Industries shares can be evaluated.

Lakeland Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lakeland Industries's SIR currently stands at 3.65. In other words for every 100,000 Lakeland Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3650 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 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lakeland Industries shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0493% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lakeland Industries shares, roughly 49 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 Lakeland Industries.
