Valuing American Airlines Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of American Airlines Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
American Airlines Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, American Airlines Group shares trade at around 3x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
However, American Airlines Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the airlines industry or those of similar companies.
American Airlines Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6272. 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 American Airlines Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
However, it's sensible to consider American Airlines Group's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting American Airlines Group shares can be evaluated.

However American Airlines Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of American Airlines Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable American Airlines Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case American Airlines Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.31% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 American Airlines Group shares in existence, roughly 310 shares are currently held short) or 0.4474% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable American Airlines Group shares, roughly 447 shares are currently held short).
