There are currently 67.7 million PG-and-E Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as PG-and-E Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 19.8% down from 84.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PG-and-E Corporation shares can be evaluated.
PG-and-E Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PG-and-E Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PG-and-E Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 14.0 million). PG-and-E Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.83. In other words for every 100,000 PG-and-E Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4830 shares are currently held short.
However PG-and-E Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PG-and-E Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable PG-and-E Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PG-and-E Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PG-and-E Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0347% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PG-and-E Corporation shares, roughly 35 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 PG-and-E Corporation.

We're not expecting PG-and-E Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
PG-and-E Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 July 1983. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your PG-and-E Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PG-and-E Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted PG-and-E Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, PG-and-E Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.25 up to $18.095. 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 PG-and-E Corporation's is 1.1094. This would suggest that PG-and-E Corporation'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).
