Shorting Ascena Retail Group shares

There are currently 3.1 million Ascena Retail Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Ascena Retail Group's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 3.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ascena Retail Group shares can be evaluated.

Ascena Retail Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ascena Retail Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ascena Retail Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ascena Retail Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Ascena Retail Group's SIR currently stands at 3.11. In other words for every 100,000 Ascena Retail Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3110 shares are currently held short.

However Ascena Retail Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ascena Retail Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ascena Retail Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ascena Retail Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.3% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ascena Retail Group shares in existence, roughly 300 shares are currently held short) or 0.3377% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ascena Retail Group shares, roughly 338 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 Ascena Retail Group.

Have Ascena Retail Group's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ascena Retail Group shares which in turn could have impacted Ascena Retail Group's share price.

ASNA.US volatility(beta: 1.71)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 Ascena Retail Group's is 1.7059. This would suggest that Ascena Retail Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
