Shorting Comstock Resources shares

There are currently 3.9 million Comstock Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as Comstock Resources's "short interest". This figure is 28.8% down from 5.5 million last month.

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

Comstock Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Comstock Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Comstock Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Comstock Resources shares traded daily (recently around 4.1 million). Comstock Resources's SIR currently stands at 0.94. In other words for every 100,000 Comstock Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 940 shares are currently held short.

However Comstock Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Comstock Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable Comstock Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Comstock Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Comstock Resources shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0482% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Comstock Resources shares, roughly 48 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 Comstock Resources.

Have Comstock Resources's shares ever split?

Comstock Resources's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 31 July 2016. So if you had owned 5 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 Comstock Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Comstock Resources shares which in turn could have impacted Comstock Resources's share price.

Comstock Resources share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Comstock Resources's is 1.3007. This would suggest that Comstock 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).
