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.

Shorting SeaWorld Entertainment shares

There are currently 5.1 million SeaWorld Entertainment shares held short by investors – that's known as SeaWorld Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 3.2% up from 4.9 million last month.

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

SeaWorld Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SeaWorld Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SeaWorld Entertainment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SeaWorld Entertainment shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). SeaWorld Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 4.52. In other words for every 100,000 SeaWorld Entertainment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4520 shares are currently held short.

However SeaWorld Entertainment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SeaWorld Entertainment shares, or, against the total number of tradable SeaWorld Entertainment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SeaWorld Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SeaWorld Entertainment shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0996% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SeaWorld Entertainment shares, roughly 100 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 SeaWorld Entertainment.
