Shorting Planet Green shares

There are currently 131,513 Planet Green shares held short by investors – that's known as Planet Green's "short interest". This figure is 10.5% down from 147,017 last month.

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

Planet Green's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Planet Green's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Planet Green shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Planet Green shares traded daily (recently around 487085.18518519). Planet Green's SIR currently stands at 0.27. In other words for every 100,000 Planet Green shares traded daily on the market, roughly 270 shares are currently held short.

However Planet Green's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Planet Green shares, or, against the total number of tradable Planet Green shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Planet Green's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Planet Green shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.014% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Planet Green shares, roughly 14 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 Planet Green.

Have Planet Green's shares ever split?

Planet Green's shares were split on a 1:25 basis on 1 October 2018. So if you had owned 25 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 Planet Green shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Planet Green shares which in turn could have impacted Planet Green's share price.

Planet Green share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Planet Green's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.5322 up to $4.58. 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 (AMEX average) beta is 1, while Planet Green's is -0.2773. This would suggest that Planet Green's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Planet Green has bucked the trend.
