Is Nordstrom under- or over-valued?
Valuing Nordstrom stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nordstrom's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nordstrom's PEG ratio
Nordstrom's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0461. 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 Nordstrom's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Nordstrom's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $225 million.

Shorting Nordstrom shares
There are currently 18.3 million Nordstrom shares held short by investors – that's known as Nordstrom's "short interest". This figure is 9.1% up from 16.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Nordstrom shares can be evaluated.
Nordstrom's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Nordstrom's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nordstrom shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nordstrom shares traded daily (recently around 3.1 million). Nordstrom's SIR currently stands at 5.9. In other words for every 100,000 Nordstrom shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5900 shares are currently held short.
However Nordstrom's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nordstrom shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nordstrom shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nordstrom's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nordstrom shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1648% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nordstrom shares, roughly 165 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 Nordstrom.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nordstrom shares which in turn could have impacted Nordstrom's share price.
