The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Urban Outfitters'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 Urban Outfitters shares

There are currently 6.0 million Urban Outfitters shares held short by investors – that's known as Urban Outfitters's "short interest". This figure is 11% down from 6.7 million last month.

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

Urban Outfitters's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Urban Outfitters's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Urban Outfitters shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Urban Outfitters shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Urban Outfitters's SIR currently stands at 3.08. In other words for every 100,000 Urban Outfitters shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3080 shares are currently held short.

However Urban Outfitters's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Urban Outfitters shares, or, against the total number of tradable Urban Outfitters shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Urban Outfitters's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Urban Outfitters shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0811% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Urban Outfitters shares, roughly 81 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 Urban Outfitters.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Urban Outfitters shares which in turn could have impacted Urban Outfitters's share price.
