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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.

There are currently 1.9 million Niu Technologies stocks held short by investors – that's known as Niu Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 4.2% down from 2.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Niu Technologies stocks can be evaluated.

Niu Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Niu Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Niu Technologies stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Niu Technologies stocks traded daily (recently around 650682.81786942). Niu Technologies's SIR currently stands at 2.91. In other words for every 100,000 Niu Technologies stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2910 stocks are currently held short.

However Niu Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Niu Technologies stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Niu Technologies stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Niu Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Niu Technologies stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0455% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Niu Technologies stocks, roughly 46 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Niu Technologies.
