Is Sunrun under- or over-valued?

Valuing Sunrun stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sunrun's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Shorting Sunrun shares

There are currently 37.6 million Sunrun shares held short by investors – that's known as Sunrun's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% up from 36.8 million last month.

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

Sunrun's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sunrun's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sunrun shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sunrun shares traded daily (recently around 6.1 million). Sunrun's SIR currently stands at 6.17. In other words for every 100,000 Sunrun shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6170 shares are currently held short.

However Sunrun's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sunrun shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sunrun shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sunrun's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sunrun shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.2545% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sunrun shares, roughly 255 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Sunrun.
