Shorting Noble Corporation shares

There are currently 14.7 million Noble Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Noble Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 28.7% down from 20.6 million last month.

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

Noble Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Noble Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Noble Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Noble Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 12.3 million). Noble Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.19. In other words for every 100,000 Noble Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1190 shares are currently held short.

However Noble Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Noble Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Noble Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Noble Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Noble Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0704% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Noble Corporation shares, roughly 70 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 Noble Corporation.

Have Noble Corporation's shares ever split?

Noble Corporation's shares were split on a 1144:1000 basis on 4 August 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1144 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Noble Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 12.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Noble Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Noble Corporation's share price.

Noble Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Noble Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.02 up to $1.03. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NE.US volatility(beta: 2.45)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 Noble Corporation's is 2.4504. This would suggest that Noble Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
