Shorting Cemtrex shares

There are currently 522,515 Cemtrex shares held short by investors – that's known as Cemtrex's "short interest". This figure is 6.5% down from 558,842 last month.

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

Cemtrex's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cemtrex's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cemtrex shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cemtrex shares traded daily (recently around 8.7 million). Cemtrex's SIR currently stands at 0.06. In other words for every 100,000 Cemtrex shares traded daily on the market, roughly 60 shares are currently held short.

However Cemtrex's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cemtrex shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cemtrex shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cemtrex's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cemtrex shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0311% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cemtrex shares, roughly 31 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 Cemtrex.

Cemtrex share dividends

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

Have Cemtrex's shares ever split?

Cemtrex's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 12 June 2019. So if you had owned 8 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 Cemtrex shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cemtrex shares which in turn could have impacted Cemtrex's share price.

Cemtrex share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cemtrex's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.702 up to $4.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CETX.US volatility(beta: 2.2)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 Cemtrex's is 2.1986. This would suggest that Cemtrex's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
