Is United States Steel 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 United States Steel 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 United States Steel Corporation shares can be evaluated.

United States Steel Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In this case United States Steel Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 United States Steel Corporation shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.143% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable United States Steel Corporation shares, roughly 143 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 United States Steel Corporation.
