Is Performance Food Group Company under- or over-valued?

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Performance Food Group 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 currently 1.9 million Performance Food Group Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Performance Food Group Company's "short interest". This figure is 27.6% down from 2.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Performance Food Group Company shares can be evaluated.

Performance Food Group Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Performance Food Group Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Performance Food Group Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Performance Food Group Company shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Performance Food Group Company's SIR currently stands at 1.23. In other words for every 100,000 Performance Food Group Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1230 shares are currently held short.

However Performance Food Group Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Performance Food Group Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Performance Food Group Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Performance Food Group Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Performance Food Group Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0159% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Performance Food Group Company shares, roughly 16 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 Performance Food Group Company.
