Shorting Hexcel Corporation shares
There are currently 9.0 million Hexcel Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Hexcel Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.1% up from 8.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hexcel Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Hexcel Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Hexcel Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hexcel Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hexcel Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 604886.98859826). Hexcel Corporation's SIR currently stands at 14.91. In other words for every 100,000 Hexcel Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14910 shares are currently held short.
However Hexcel Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hexcel Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hexcel Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hexcel Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hexcel Corporation shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1082% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hexcel Corporation shares, roughly 108 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Hexcel Corporation.

Have Hexcel Corporation's shares ever split?
Hexcel Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 22 May 1988. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hexcel Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hexcel Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Hexcel Corporation's share price.
Hexcel Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Hexcel Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.04 up to $64.99. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Hexcel Corporation's is 1.5207. This would suggest that Hexcel Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
