Shorting CPI Aerostructures shares

There are currently 54,761 CPI Aerostructures shares held short by investors – that's known as CPI Aerostructures's "short interest". This figure is 592.5% up from 7,908 last month.

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

CPI Aerostructures's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CPI Aerostructures's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CPI Aerostructures shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CPI Aerostructures shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). CPI Aerostructures's SIR currently stands at 0.03. In other words for every 100,000 CPI Aerostructures shares traded daily on the market, roughly 30 shares are currently held short.

However CPI Aerostructures's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CPI Aerostructures shares, or, against the total number of tradable CPI Aerostructures shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CPI Aerostructures's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CPI Aerostructures shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.005% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CPI Aerostructures shares, roughly 5 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 CPI Aerostructures.

Have CPI Aerostructures's shares ever split?

CPI Aerostructures's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 22 June 1999. So if you had owned 3 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 CPI Aerostructures shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for CPI Aerostructures shares which in turn could have impacted CPI Aerostructures's share price.

CPI Aerostructures share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CPI Aerostructures's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.18 up to $5.36. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CVU.US volatility(beta: 1.88)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while CPI Aerostructures's is 1.8842. This would suggest that CPI Aerostructures's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
