Shorting Reading International shares

There are currently 24,253 Reading International shares held short by investors – that's known as Reading International's "short interest". This figure is 20.8% down from 30,618 last month.

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

Reading International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Reading International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Reading International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Reading International shares traded daily (recently around 83631.034482759). Reading International's SIR currently stands at 0.29. In other words for every 100,000 Reading International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 290 shares are currently held short.

However Reading International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Reading International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Reading International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Reading International's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Reading International shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Reading International shares, roughly 2 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 Reading International.

Have Reading International's shares ever split?

Reading International's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 April 1993. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Reading International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Reading International shares which in turn could have impacted Reading International's share price.

Reading International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Reading International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.22 up to $7.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RDI.US volatility(beta: 1.79)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Reading International's is 1.7884. This would suggest that Reading International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
