DXC Technology Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.28. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued given the current rate of growth.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into DXC Technology Company'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 a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DXC Technology Company shares can be evaluated.
Short interest ratio (SIR)

However DXC Technology Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DXC Technology Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable DXC Technology Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DXC Technology Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DXC Technology Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0339% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DXC Technology Company shares, roughly 34 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 DXC Technology Company.
