Valuing RLJ Lodging Trust stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of RLJ Lodging Trust'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 RLJ Lodging Trust's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 10.2 million RLJ Lodging Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as RLJ Lodging Trust's "short interest". This figure is 18% up from 8.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting RLJ Lodging Trust shares can be evaluated.
RLJ Lodging Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RLJ Lodging Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RLJ Lodging Trust shares traded daily (recently around 965345.49763033). RLJ Lodging Trust's SIR currently stands at 10.55. In other words for every 100,000 RLJ Lodging Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10550 shares are currently held short.
However RLJ Lodging Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RLJ Lodging Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable RLJ Lodging Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RLJ Lodging Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RLJ Lodging Trust shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0883% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RLJ Lodging Trust shares, roughly 88 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 RLJ Lodging Trust.
