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.

Shorting Uniti Group shares

There are currently 14.3 million Uniti Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Uniti Group's "short interest". This figure is 2.4% down from 14.6 million last month.

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

Uniti Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Uniti Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Uniti Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Uniti Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Uniti Group's SIR currently stands at 8.76. In other words for every 100,000 Uniti Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8760 shares are currently held short.

However Uniti Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Uniti Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Uniti Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Uniti Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Uniti Group shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0796% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Uniti Group shares, roughly 80 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 Uniti Group.
