Shorting Huazhu Group shares

There are currently 14.8 million Huazhu Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Huazhu Group's "short interest". This figure is 4.1% down from 15.4 million last month.

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

Huazhu Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Huazhu Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Huazhu Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Huazhu Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Huazhu Group's SIR currently stands at 12.42. In other words for every 100,000 Huazhu Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12420 shares are currently held short.

However Huazhu Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Huazhu Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Huazhu Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Huazhu Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Huazhu Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0551% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Huazhu Group shares, roughly 55 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 Huazhu Group.

Huazhu Group share dividends

We're not expecting Huazhu Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Huazhu Group's shares ever split?

Huazhu Group's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 24 May 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Huazhu Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Huazhu Group shares which in turn could have impacted Huazhu Group's share price.

Huazhu Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Huazhu Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.5 up to $64.53. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HTHT.US volatility(beta: 1.58)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 Huazhu Group's is 1.58. This would suggest that Huazhu Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
