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.

Points International's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Points International'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 Points International shares

There are currently 6,322 Points International shares held short by investors – that's known as Points International's "short interest". This figure is 51.3% down from 12,989 last month.

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

Points International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Points International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Points International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Points International shares traded daily (recently around 33273.684210526). Points International's SIR currently stands at 0.19. In other words for every 100,000 Points International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 190 shares are currently held short.

However Points International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Points International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Points International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Points International's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Points International shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Points International shares, roughly 0 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 Points International.

Have Points International's shares ever split?

Points International's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 1 February 2011. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Points International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Points International shares which in turn could have impacted Points International's share price.

Points International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Points International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.89 up to $16.46. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PCOM.US volatility(beta: 1.97)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Points International's is 1.9713. This would suggest that Points International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
