Shorting Gulf Resources shares

There are currently 673 Gulf Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as Gulf Resources's "short interest". This figure is 69.5% down from 2,209 last month.

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

Gulf Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Gulf Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gulf Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gulf Resources shares traded daily (recently around 16825). Gulf Resources's SIR currently stands at 0.04. In other words for every 100,000 Gulf Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 40 shares are currently held short.

However Gulf Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gulf Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gulf Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gulf Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gulf Resources shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0001% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gulf Resources shares, roughly 0 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 Gulf Resources.

Have Gulf Resources's shares ever split?

Gulf Resources's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 28 January 2020. So if you had owned 5 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 Gulf Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gulf Resources shares which in turn could have impacted Gulf Resources's share price.

Gulf Resources share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Gulf Resources's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.5 up to $6.42. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
