Shorting IMAX Corporation shares

There are currently 3.2 million IMAX Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as IMAX Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% up from 3.2 million last month.

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

IMAX Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

IMAX Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IMAX Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IMAX Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 536351.09612142). IMAX Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.93. In other words for every 100,000 IMAX Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5930 shares are currently held short.

However IMAX Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IMAX Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable IMAX Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IMAX Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IMAX Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0641% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IMAX Corporation shares, roughly 64 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against IMAX Corporation.

IMAX Corporation share dividends

We're not expecting IMAX Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have IMAX Corporation's shares ever split?

IMAX Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 May 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your IMAX Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for IMAX Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted IMAX Corporation's share price.

IMAX Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, IMAX Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.5 up to $25.05. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IMAX.US volatility(beta: 1.81)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while IMAX Corporation's is 1.8063. This would suggest that IMAX 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).
