Is JetBlue Airways Corporation under- or over-valued?

Valuing JetBlue Airways Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of JetBlue Airways Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

JetBlue Airways Corporation's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into JetBlue Airways Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting JetBlue Airways Corporation shares

There are currently 15.1 million JetBlue Airways Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as JetBlue Airways Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% up from 14.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting JetBlue Airways Corporation shares can be evaluated.

JetBlue Airways Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

JetBlue Airways Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of JetBlue Airways Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of JetBlue Airways Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 11.2 million). JetBlue Airways Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.35. In other words for every 100,000 JetBlue Airways Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1350 shares are currently held short.

However JetBlue Airways Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of JetBlue Airways Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable JetBlue Airways Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case JetBlue Airways Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 JetBlue Airways Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0531% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable JetBlue Airways Corporation shares, roughly 53 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 JetBlue Airways Corporation.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for JetBlue Airways Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted JetBlue Airways Corporation's share price.
