Shorting MAG Silver shares

There are currently 3.6 million MAG Silver shares held short by investors – that's known as MAG Silver's "short interest". This figure is 5.4% up from 3.5 million last month.

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

MAG Silver's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MAG Silver's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MAG Silver shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MAG Silver shares traded daily (recently around 668020.32967033). MAG Silver's SIR currently stands at 5.46. In other words for every 100,000 MAG Silver shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5460 shares are currently held short.

However MAG Silver's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MAG Silver shares, or, against the total number of tradable MAG Silver shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MAG Silver's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MAG Silver shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MAG Silver shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against MAG Silver.

MAG Silver share price volatility

MAG.US volatility(beta: 1.26)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while MAG Silver's is 1.262. This would suggest that MAG Silver's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
