Shorting Kimball Electronics shares

There are currently 432,349 Kimball Electronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Kimball Electronics's "short interest". This figure is 9.4% down from 477,128 last month.

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

Kimball Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kimball Electronics's SIR currently stands at 4.83. In other words for every 100,000 Kimball Electronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4830 shares are currently held short.

However Kimball Electronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kimball Electronics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kimball Electronics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kimball Electronics's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kimball Electronics shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0181% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kimball Electronics shares, roughly 18 shares are currently held short).

Have Kimball Electronics's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kimball Electronics shares which in turn could have impacted Kimball Electronics's share price.

Kimball Electronics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kimball Electronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11 up to $29.09. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KE.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 Kimball Electronics's is 1.4157. This would suggest that Kimball Electronics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
