Shorting Star Equity shares

There are currently 149,607 Star Equity shares held short by investors – that's known as Star Equity's "short interest". This figure is 18.2% down from 182,874 last month.

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

Star Equity's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Star Equity's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Star Equity shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Star Equity shares traded daily (recently around 282277.35849057). Star Equity's SIR currently stands at 0.53. In other words for every 100,000 Star Equity shares traded daily on the market, roughly 530 shares are currently held short.

However Star Equity's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Star Equity shares, or, against the total number of tradable Star Equity shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Star Equity's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Star Equity shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0336% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Star Equity shares, roughly 34 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 Star Equity.

Have Star Equity's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Star Equity shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Star Equity shares which in turn could have impacted Star Equity's share price.
