Is SBA Communications Corporation under- or over-valued?

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 SBA Communications Corporation'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 1.5 million SBA Communications Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as SBA Communications Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.7% up from 1.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SBA Communications Corporation shares can be evaluated.

SBA Communications Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In other words for every 100,000 SBA Communications Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2800 shares are currently held short.

However SBA Communications Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SBA Communications Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable SBA Communications Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SBA Communications Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SBA Communications Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0162% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SBA Communications Corporation shares, roughly 16 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 SBA Communications Corporation.
