Shorting Mechel PAO shares

There are currently 490,279 Mechel PAO shares held short by investors – that's known as Mechel PAO's "short interest". This figure is 71.2% up from 286,403 last month.

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

Mechel PAO's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Mechel PAO's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mechel PAO shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mechel PAO shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Mechel PAO's SIR currently stands at 0.37. In other words for every 100,000 Mechel PAO shares traded daily on the market, roughly 370 shares are currently held short.

However Mechel PAO's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mechel PAO shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mechel PAO shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mechel PAO's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mechel PAO shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0032% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mechel PAO shares, roughly 3 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 Mechel PAO.

Have Mechel PAO's shares ever split?

Mechel PAO's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 11 January 2016. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Mechel PAO shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mechel PAO shares which in turn could have impacted Mechel PAO's share price.

Mechel PAO share price volatility

MTL.US volatility(beta: 1.43)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 Mechel PAO's is 1.4312. This would suggest that Mechel PAO's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
