Shorting Apple Hospitality REIT shares

There are currently 3.7 million Apple Hospitality REIT shares held short by investors – that's known as Apple Hospitality REIT's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% up from 3.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Apple Hospitality REIT shares can be evaluated.

Apple Hospitality REIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Apple Hospitality REIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Apple Hospitality REIT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Apple Hospitality REIT shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Apple Hospitality REIT's SIR currently stands at 1.5. In other words for every 100,000 Apple Hospitality REIT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1500 shares are currently held short.

However Apple Hospitality REIT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Apple Hospitality REIT shares, or, against the total number of tradable Apple Hospitality REIT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Apple Hospitality REIT's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Apple Hospitality REIT shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0211% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Apple Hospitality REIT shares, roughly 21 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 Apple Hospitality REIT.

We're not expecting Apple Hospitality REIT to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Apple Hospitality REIT's shares ever split?

Apple Hospitality REIT's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 18 May 2015. So if you had owned 2 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 Apple Hospitality REIT shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Apple Hospitality REIT shares which in turn could have impacted Apple Hospitality REIT's share price.

Apple Hospitality REIT share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Apple Hospitality REIT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.48 up to $16.876. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

APLE.US volatility(beta: 1.14)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Apple Hospitality REIT's is 1.1401. This would suggest that Apple Hospitality REIT'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).
