Shorting Avaya shares

There are currently 10.2 million Avaya shares held short by investors – that's known as Avaya's "short interest". This figure is 11.2% up from 9.2 million last month.

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

Avaya's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Avaya's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avaya shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avaya shares traded daily (recently around 839871.89811011). Avaya's SIR currently stands at 12.17. In other words for every 100,000 Avaya shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12170 shares are currently held short.

However Avaya's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avaya shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avaya shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avaya's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avaya shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1426% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avaya shares, roughly 143 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Avaya.

Avaya share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Avaya's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.59 up to $34.06. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AVYA.US volatility(beta: 1.73)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 Avaya's is 1.7253. This would suggest that Avaya's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
