Shorting Darling Ingredients shares

There are currently 3.2 million Darling Ingredients shares held short by investors – that's known as Darling Ingredients's "short interest". This figure is 8.6% up from 2.9 million last month.

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

Darling Ingredients's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Darling Ingredients's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Darling Ingredients shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Darling Ingredients shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Darling Ingredients's SIR currently stands at 2.03. In other words for every 100,000 Darling Ingredients shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2030 shares are currently held short.

However Darling Ingredients's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Darling Ingredients shares, or, against the total number of tradable Darling Ingredients shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Darling Ingredients's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Darling Ingredients shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0234% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Darling Ingredients shares, roughly 23 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 Darling Ingredients.

Have Darling Ingredients's shares ever split?

Darling Ingredients's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 9 November 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Darling Ingredients shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Darling Ingredients shares which in turn could have impacted Darling Ingredients's share price.

Darling Ingredients share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Darling Ingredients's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.73 up to $79.65. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DAR.US volatility(beta: 1.03)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Darling Ingredients's is 1.0339. This would suggest that Darling Ingredients's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
