Shorting Lannett Company shares

There are currently 5.8 million Lannett Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Lannett Company's "short interest". This figure is 34.2% down from 8.8 million last month.

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

Lannett Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lannett Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lannett Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lannett Company shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Lannett Company's SIR currently stands at 2.6. In other words for every 100,000 Lannett Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2600 shares are currently held short.

However Lannett Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lannett Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lannett Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lannett Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lannett Company shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1718% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lannett Company shares, roughly 172 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Lannett Company.

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

Have Lannett Company's shares ever split?

Lannett Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 March 2003. 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 Lannett Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lannett Company shares which in turn could have impacted Lannett Company's share price.

Lannett Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lannett Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.12 up to $10.7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LCI.US volatility(beta: 1.13)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 Lannett Company's is 1.1322. This would suggest that Lannett Company's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
