Shorting Chicos FAS shares

There are currently 10.9 million Chicos FAS shares held short by investors – that's known as Chicos FAS's "short interest". This figure is 32.1% up from 8.2 million last month.

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

Chicos FAS's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Chicos FAS's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chicos FAS shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chicos FAS shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Chicos FAS's SIR currently stands at 4.83. In other words for every 100,000 Chicos FAS shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4830 shares are currently held short.

However Chicos FAS's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chicos FAS shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chicos FAS shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chicos FAS's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chicos FAS shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.108% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chicos FAS shares, roughly 108 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 Chicos FAS.

Have Chicos FAS's shares ever split?

Chicos FAS's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 February 2005. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chicos FAS shares which in turn could have impacted Chicos FAS's share price.

Chicos FAS share price volatility

This would suggest that Chicos FAS's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
