Is Beyond Meat under- or over-valued?

Beyond Meat's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Beyond Meat shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Beyond Meat shares traded daily (recently around 6.4 million). Beyond Meat's SIR currently stands at 1.17. In other words for every 100,000 Beyond Meat shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1170 shares are currently held short.
However Beyond Meat's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Beyond Meat shares, or, against the total number of tradable Beyond Meat shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Beyond Meat's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Beyond Meat shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1335% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Beyond Meat shares, roughly 134 shares are currently held short).
