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.

SandRidge Energy's PEG ratio

SandRidge Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.82. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

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

There are currently 447,759 SandRidge Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as SandRidge Energy's "short interest". This figure is 17.4% up from 381,524 last month.

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

SandRidge Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SandRidge Energy's SIR currently stands at 0.71. In other words for every 100,000 SandRidge Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 710 shares are currently held short.

However SandRidge Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SandRidge Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable SandRidge Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SandRidge Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SandRidge Energy shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0149% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SandRidge Energy shares, roughly 15 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 SandRidge Energy.
