Is LGI Homes under- or over-valued?
Valuing LGI Homes stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of LGI Homes's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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 LGI Homes'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 LGI Homes shares can be evaluated.
LGI Homes's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LGI Homes's SIR currently stands at 6.93. In other words for every 100,000 LGI Homes shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6930 shares are currently held short.
However LGI Homes's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LGI Homes shares, or, against the total number of tradable LGI Homes shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LGI Homes's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LGI Homes shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0989% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LGI Homes shares, roughly 99 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 LGI Homes.
