Shorting American Superconductor Corporation shares

There are currently 1.1 million American Superconductor Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as American Superconductor Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 13.2% down from 1.3 million last month.

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

American Superconductor Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

American Superconductor Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of American Superconductor Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of American Superconductor Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 439092.27799228). American Superconductor Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.59. In other words for every 100,000 American Superconductor Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2590 shares are currently held short.

However American Superconductor Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of American Superconductor Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable American Superconductor Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case American Superconductor Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 American Superconductor Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0429% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable American Superconductor Corporation shares, roughly 43 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 American Superconductor Corporation.

Have American Superconductor Corporation's shares ever split?

American Superconductor Corporation's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 24 March 2015. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your American Superconductor Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for American Superconductor Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted American Superconductor Corporation's share price.

American Superconductor Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, American Superconductor Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.55 up to $31.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMSC.US volatility(beta: 1.18)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 American Superconductor Corporation's is 1.1815. This would suggest that American Superconductor Corporation'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).
