Valuing Peabody Energy Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Peabody Energy Corporation'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.

There are currently 6.3 million Peabody Energy Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Peabody Energy Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 25.2% down from 8.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Peabody Energy Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Peabody Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Peabody Energy Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Peabody Energy Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 4.1 million). Peabody Energy Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.55. In other words for every 100,000 Peabody Energy Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1550 shares are currently held short.
However Peabody Energy Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Peabody Energy Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Peabody Energy Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Peabody Energy Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Peabody Energy Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.093% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Peabody Energy Corporation shares, roughly 93 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 Peabody Energy Corporation.
