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 RF Industries shares

There are currently 27,226 RF Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as RF Industries's "short interest". This figure is 192.5% up from 9,307 last month.

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

RF Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

RF Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RF Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RF Industries shares traded daily (recently around 104715.38461538). RF Industries's SIR currently stands at 0.26. In other words for every 100,000 RF Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 260 shares are currently held short.

However RF Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RF Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable RF Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RF Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RF Industries shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0028% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RF Industries shares, roughly 3 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 RF Industries.

Have RF Industries's shares ever split?

RF Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 March 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your RF Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for RF Industries shares which in turn could have impacted RF Industries's share price.

RF Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, RF Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.05 up to $7.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RFIL.US volatility(beta: 1.16)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 RF Industries's is 1.1577. This would suggest that RF Industries's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
