Is NeoPhotonics Corporation under- or over-valued?

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Shorting NeoPhotonics Corporation shares

There are currently 2.3 million NeoPhotonics Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as NeoPhotonics Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 41.7% up from 1.6 million last month.

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

NeoPhotonics Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NeoPhotonics Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NeoPhotonics Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NeoPhotonics Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). NeoPhotonics Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.78. In other words for every 100,000 NeoPhotonics Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1780 shares are currently held short.

However NeoPhotonics Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NeoPhotonics Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable NeoPhotonics Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NeoPhotonics Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NeoPhotonics Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0466% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NeoPhotonics Corporation shares, roughly 47 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 NeoPhotonics Corporation.
