Shorting Cadiz shares

There are currently 3.2 million Cadiz shares held short by investors – that's known as Cadiz's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 3.2 million last month.

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

Cadiz's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cadiz's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cadiz shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cadiz shares traded daily (recently around 161189.03486609). Cadiz's SIR currently stands at 19.79. In other words for every 100,000 Cadiz shares traded daily on the market, roughly 19790 shares are currently held short.

However Cadiz's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cadiz shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cadiz shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cadiz's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cadiz shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1369% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cadiz shares, roughly 137 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 Cadiz.

Cadiz share dividends

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

Have Cadiz's shares ever split?

Cadiz's shares were split on a 1:25 basis on 18 December 2003. So if you had owned 25 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 Cadiz shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cadiz shares which in turn could have impacted Cadiz's share price.

Cadiz share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cadiz's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.42 up to $12.93. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Cadiz's is -0.6569. This would suggest that Cadiz's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Cadiz has bucked the trend.
