WW International's P/E ratio

WW International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, WW International stocks trade at around 34x recent earnings.

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.

WW International's PEG ratio

WW International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7021. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into WW International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 5.0 million WW International stocks held short by investors – that's known as WW International's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% up from 4.9 million last month.

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

WW International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

WW International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WW International stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WW International stocks traded daily (recently around 748711.87969925). WW International's SIR currently stands at 6.65. In other words for every 100,000 WW International stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 6650 stocks are currently held short.

However WW International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WW International stocks, or, against the total number of tradable WW International stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WW International's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 WW International stocks in existence, roughly 70 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0943% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable WW International stocks, roughly 94 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against WW International.
