Shorting Air T shares

There are currently 7,982 Air T shares held short by investors – that's known as Air T's "short interest". This figure is 504.2% up from 1,321 last month.

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

Air T's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Air T's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Air T shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Air T shares traded daily (recently around 5251.3157894737). Air T's SIR currently stands at 1.52. In other words for every 100,000 Air T shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1520 shares are currently held short.

However Air T's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Air T shares, or, against the total number of tradable Air T shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Air T's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Air T shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0067% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Air T shares, roughly 7 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 Air T.

Air T share dividends

We're not expecting Air T to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Air T's shares ever split?

Air T's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 June 2019. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Air T shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Air T shares which in turn could have impacted Air T's share price.

Air T share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Air T's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.06 up to $21.8929. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AIRT.US volatility(beta: 1.16)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Air T's is 1.1575. This would suggest that Air T's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
