Is Shenandoah Telecommunications Company 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.

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's SIR currently stands at 6.64. In other words for every 100,000 Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6640 shares are currently held short.

However Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0277% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares, roughly 28 shares are currently held short).
