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 Terminix Global'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 Terminix Global shares

There are currently 2.3 million Terminix Global shares held short by investors – that's known as Terminix Global's "short interest". This figure is 7% down from 2.5 million last month.

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

Terminix Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Terminix Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Terminix Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Terminix Global shares traded daily (recently around 964838.42975207). Terminix Global's SIR currently stands at 2.42. In other words for every 100,000 Terminix Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2420 shares are currently held short.

However Terminix Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Terminix Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable Terminix Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Terminix Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Terminix Global shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0235% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Terminix Global shares, roughly 24 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 Terminix Global.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Terminix Global shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Terminix Global shares which in turn could have impacted Terminix Global's share price.

This would suggest that Terminix Global's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
