Is Science Applications International Corporation under- or over-valued?

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Science Applications International 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 a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Science Applications International Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Science Applications International Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Science Applications International Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Science Applications International Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Science Applications International Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 311019.45701357). Science Applications International Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.21.

However Science Applications International Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Science Applications International Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Science Applications International Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Science Applications International Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Science Applications International Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.012% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Science Applications International Corporation shares, roughly 12 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 Science Applications International Corporation.
