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 Sandstorm Gold shares

There are currently 4.1 million Sandstorm Gold shares held short by investors – that's known as Sandstorm Gold's "short interest". This figure is 25% up from 3.3 million last month.

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

Sandstorm Gold's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sandstorm Gold's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sandstorm Gold shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sandstorm Gold shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Sandstorm Gold's SIR currently stands at 1.67. In other words for every 100,000 Sandstorm Gold shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1670 shares are currently held short.

However Sandstorm Gold's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sandstorm Gold shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sandstorm Gold shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sandstorm Gold's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sandstorm Gold shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sandstorm Gold 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 Sandstorm Gold.

However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sandstorm Gold shares which in turn could have impacted Sandstorm Gold's share price.
