There are currently 671,110 LSB Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as LSB Industries's "short interest". This figure is 12.8% down from 769,405 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting LSB Industries shares can be evaluated.
LSB Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LSB Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LSB Industries shares traded daily (recently around 148804.87804878). LSB Industries's SIR currently stands at 4.51. In other words for every 100,000 LSB Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4510 shares are currently held short.
However LSB Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LSB Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable LSB Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LSB Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LSB Industries shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0367% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LSB Industries shares, roughly 37 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 LSB Industries.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your LSB Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for LSB Industries shares which in turn could have impacted LSB Industries's share price.
Over the last 12 months, LSB Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1 up to $5.14. 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 average) beta is 1, while LSB Industries's is 2.8331. This would suggest that LSB Industries's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
