Shorting Dril-Quip shares

There are currently 1.7 million Dril-Quip shares held short by investors – that's known as Dril-Quip's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% up from 1.7 million last month.

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

Dril-Quip's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dril-Quip's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dril-Quip shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dril-Quip shares traded daily (recently around 225678.22685789). Dril-Quip's SIR currently stands at 7.67. In other words for every 100,000 Dril-Quip shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7670 shares are currently held short.

However Dril-Quip's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dril-Quip shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dril-Quip shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dril-Quip's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dril-Quip shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0807% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dril-Quip shares, roughly 81 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Dril-Quip.

Have Dril-Quip's shares ever split?

Dril-Quip's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 October 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dril-Quip shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dril-Quip shares which in turn could have impacted Dril-Quip's share price.

Dril-Quip share price volatility

DRQ.US volatility(beta: 1.54)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 Dril-Quip's is 1.5438. This would suggest that Dril-Quip's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
