Shorting Cameco Corporation shares

There are currently 9.7 million Cameco Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Cameco Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 17.9% down from 11.8 million last month.

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

Cameco Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cameco Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cameco Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cameco Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 6.2 million). Cameco Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.56. In other words for every 100,000 Cameco Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1560 shares are currently held short.

However Cameco Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cameco Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cameco Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cameco Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cameco Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cameco Corporation shares, roughly 0 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 Cameco Corporation.

Have Cameco Corporation's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cameco Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cameco Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Cameco Corporation's share price.
