Shorting China Natural Resources shares

There are currently 28,973 China Natural Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as China Natural Resources's "short interest". This figure is 32.4% up from 21,877 last month.

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

China Natural Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

China Natural Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Natural Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Natural Resources shares traded daily (recently around 362162.5). China Natural Resources's SIR currently stands at 0.08. In other words for every 100,000 China Natural Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 80 shares are currently held short.

However China Natural Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of China Natural Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable China Natural Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case China Natural Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 China Natural Resources shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0014% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable China Natural Resources shares, roughly 1 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 China Natural Resources.

Have China Natural Resources's shares ever split?

China Natural Resources's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 14 June 1999. So if you had owned 10 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 China Natural Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for China Natural Resources shares which in turn could have impacted China Natural Resources's share price.

China Natural Resources share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, China Natural Resources's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.5796 up to $2.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CHNR.US volatility(beta: 1.55)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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