Shorting Farmer BrosCo shares

There are currently 208,572 Farmer BrosCo shares held short by investors – that's known as Farmer BrosCo's "short interest". This figure is 23% down from 270,952 last month.

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

Farmer BrosCo's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Farmer BrosCo's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Farmer BrosCo shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Farmer BrosCo shares traded daily (recently around 145854.54545455). Farmer BrosCo's SIR currently stands at 1.43. In other words for every 100,000 Farmer BrosCo shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1430 shares are currently held short.

However Farmer BrosCo's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Farmer BrosCo shares, or, against the total number of tradable Farmer BrosCo shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Farmer BrosCo's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Farmer BrosCo shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0164% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Farmer BrosCo shares, roughly 16 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 Farmer BrosCo.

We're not expecting Farmer BrosCo to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Farmer BrosCo's shares ever split?

Farmer BrosCo's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 10 May 2004. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Farmer BrosCo shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Farmer BrosCo shares which in turn could have impacted Farmer BrosCo's share price.

Farmer BrosCo share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Farmer BrosCo's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.4 up to $13.0799. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FARM.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Farmer BrosCo's is 1.5233. This would suggest that Farmer BrosCo's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
