Is Advanced Micro Devices 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.

Advanced Micro Devices's PEG ratio

Advanced Micro Devices's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3038. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Advanced Micro Devices'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 82.7 million Advanced Micro Devices shares held short by investors – that's known as Advanced Micro Devices's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% up from 81.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Advanced Micro Devices shares can be evaluated.

Advanced Micro Devices's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Advanced Micro Devices's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Advanced Micro Devices shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Advanced Micro Devices shares traded daily (recently around 42.2 million). Advanced Micro Devices's SIR currently stands at 1.96. In other words for every 100,000 Advanced Micro Devices shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1960 shares are currently held short.

However Advanced Micro Devices's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Advanced Micro Devices shares, or, against the total number of tradable Advanced Micro Devices shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Advanced Micro Devices's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Advanced Micro Devices shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0684% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Advanced Micro Devices shares, roughly 68 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 Advanced Micro Devices.
