Shorting Helix Energy Solutions Group shares

There are currently 6.8 million Helix Energy Solutions Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Helix Energy Solutions Group's "short interest". This figure is 8.1% up from 6.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Helix Energy Solutions Group shares can be evaluated.

Helix Energy Solutions Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Helix Energy Solutions Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Helix Energy Solutions Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Helix Energy Solutions Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Helix Energy Solutions Group's SIR currently stands at 4.22. In other words for every 100,000 Helix Energy Solutions Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4220 shares are currently held short.

However Helix Energy Solutions Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Helix Energy Solutions Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Helix Energy Solutions Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Helix Energy Solutions Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Helix Energy Solutions Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0479% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Helix Energy Solutions Group shares, roughly 48 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 Helix Energy Solutions Group.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Helix Energy Solutions Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Helix Energy Solutions Group shares which in turn could have impacted Helix Energy Solutions Group's share price.

Helix Energy Solutions Group share price volatility

This would suggest that Helix Energy Solutions Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
