Shorting iStar shares

There are currently 16.2 million iStar shares held short by investors – that's known as iStar's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% down from 16.2 million last month.

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

iStar's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

iStar's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of iStar shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of iStar shares traded daily (recently around 684083.63636364). iStar's SIR currently stands at 23.65. In other words for every 100,000 iStar shares traded daily on the market, roughly 23650 shares are currently held short.

However iStar's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of iStar shares, or, against the total number of tradable iStar shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case iStar's short interest could be expressed as 0.23% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 iStar shares in existence, roughly 230 shares are currently held short) or 0.4398% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable iStar shares, roughly 440 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against iStar.

iStar share dividends

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

Have iStar's shares ever split?

iStar's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 18 June 1998. So if you had owned 6 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 iStar shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for iStar shares which in turn could have impacted iStar's share price.

iStar share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, iStar's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.1352 up to $26.88. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

STAR.US volatility(beta: 0.75)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 iStar's is 0.7487. This would suggest that iStar's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
