Is FLEETCOR Technologies under- or over-valued?

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 shares or simply that they're over-valued.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FLEETCOR Technologies shares can be evaluated.

FLEETCOR Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In this case FLEETCOR Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FLEETCOR Technologies shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0254% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FLEETCOR Technologies shares, roughly 25 shares are currently held short).
