Shorting Lubys shares

There are currently 164,009 Lubys shares held short by investors – that's known as Lubys's "short interest". This figure is 10.1% down from 182,495 last month.

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

Lubys's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lubys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lubys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lubys shares traded daily (recently around 41946.035805627). Lubys's SIR currently stands at 3.91. In other words for every 100,000 Lubys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3910 shares are currently held short.

However Lubys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lubys shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lubys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lubys's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lubys shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0103% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lubys shares, roughly 10 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 Lubys.

Have Lubys's shares ever split?

Lubys's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 5 August 1990. 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 Lubys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lubys shares which in turn could have impacted Lubys's share price.

Lubys share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lubys's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.07 up to $4.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LUB.US volatility(beta: 1.16)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 Lubys's is 1.1567. This would suggest that Lubys'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).
