Is White Mountains Insurance Group under- or over-valued?

White Mountains Insurance Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In this case White Mountains Insurance Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 White Mountains Insurance Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0115% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable White Mountains Insurance Group shares, roughly 12 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 White Mountains Insurance Group.
