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

There are currently 11.2 million Zoom Video Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Zoom Video Communications's "short interest". This figure is 10.6% up from 10.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zoom Video Communications shares can be evaluated.

Zoom Video Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zoom Video Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zoom Video Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zoom Video Communications shares traded daily (recently around 4.5 million). Zoom Video Communications's SIR currently stands at 2.46. In other words for every 100,000 Zoom Video Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2460 shares are currently held short.

However Zoom Video Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zoom Video Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zoom Video Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zoom Video Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zoom Video Communications shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0518% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zoom Video Communications shares, roughly 52 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 Zoom Video Communications.
