Shorting Cinedigm shares

There are currently 3.3 million Cinedigm shares held short by investors – that's known as Cinedigm's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 3.3 million last month.

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

Cinedigm's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cinedigm's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cinedigm shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cinedigm shares traded daily (recently around 23.8 million). Cinedigm's SIR currently stands at 0.14. In other words for every 100,000 Cinedigm shares traded daily on the market, roughly 140 shares are currently held short.

However Cinedigm's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cinedigm shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cinedigm shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cinedigm's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cinedigm shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0571% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cinedigm shares, roughly 57 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 Cinedigm.

Cinedigm share dividends

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

Have Cinedigm's shares ever split?

Cinedigm's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 10 May 2016. 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 Cinedigm shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cinedigm shares which in turn could have impacted Cinedigm's share price.

Cinedigm share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cinedigm's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.25 up to $3.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CIDM.US volatility(beta: 1.7)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 Cinedigm's is 1.7033. This would suggest that Cinedigm's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
