Shorting Libbey shares
There are currently 2.8 million Libbey shares held short by investors – that's known as Libbey's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% up from 2.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Libbey shares can be evaluated.
Libbey's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Libbey's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Libbey shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Libbey shares traded daily (recently around 171041.02564103). Libbey's SIR currently stands at 16.38. In other words for every 100,000 Libbey shares traded daily on the market, roughly 16380 shares are currently held short.
However Libbey's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Libbey shares, or, against the total number of tradable Libbey shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Libbey's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Libbey shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1291% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Libbey shares, roughly 129 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 Libbey.

Have Libbey's shares ever split?
Libbey's shares were split on a 4:5 basis on 24 January 2013. So if you had owned 5 shares 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 Libbey shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Libbey shares which in turn could have impacted Libbey's share price.
Libbey share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Libbey's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.0305 up to $0.0925. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Libbey's is 3.3053. This would suggest that Libbey's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
