Is Whiting Petroleum Corporation under- or over-valued?

Whiting Petroleum Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Whiting Petroleum Corporation shares trade at around 4x recent earnings.

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 Whiting Petroleum 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 Whiting Petroleum Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Whiting Petroleum Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Whiting Petroleum Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Whiting Petroleum Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Whiting Petroleum Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Whiting Petroleum Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Whiting Petroleum Corporation shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0808% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Whiting Petroleum Corporation shares, roughly 81 shares are currently held short).
