Is Zebra Technologies Corporation under- or over-valued?

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Zebra Technologies 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 currently 702,441 Zebra Technologies Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Zebra Technologies Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.8% up from 683,034 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zebra Technologies Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Zebra Technologies Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zebra Technologies Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zebra Technologies Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zebra Technologies Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 354768.18181818). Zebra Technologies Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.98. In other words for every 100,000 Zebra Technologies Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1980 shares are currently held short.

However Zebra Technologies Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zebra Technologies Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zebra Technologies Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zebra Technologies Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zebra Technologies Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0152% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zebra Technologies Corporation shares, roughly 15 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 Zebra Technologies Corporation.
