Is NV5 Global under- or over-valued?

Valuing NV5 Global stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NV5 Global's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into NV5 Global's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting NV5 Global shares

There are currently 982,171 NV5 Global shares held short by investors – that's known as NV5 Global's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% down from 1.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NV5 Global shares can be evaluated.

NV5 Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NV5 Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NV5 Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NV5 Global shares traded daily (recently around 74746.651445967). NV5 Global's SIR currently stands at 13.14. In other words for every 100,000 NV5 Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13140 shares are currently held short.

However NV5 Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NV5 Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable NV5 Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NV5 Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NV5 Global shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.09% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NV5 Global shares, roughly 90 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against NV5 Global.
