Shorting Revlon shares

There are currently 2.9 million Revlon shares held short by investors – that's known as Revlon's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% up from 2.7 million last month.

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

Revlon's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Revlon's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Revlon shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Revlon shares traded daily (recently around 172682.98877732). Revlon's SIR currently stands at 16.93. In other words for every 100,000 Revlon shares traded daily on the market, roughly 16930 shares are currently held short.

However Revlon's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Revlon shares, or, against the total number of tradable Revlon shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Revlon's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Revlon shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.4214% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Revlon shares, roughly 421 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Revlon.

Revlon share dividends

We're not expecting Revlon to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Revlon's shares ever split?

Revlon's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 16 September 2008. So if you had owned 10 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 Revlon shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Revlon shares which in turn could have impacted Revlon's share price.

Revlon share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Revlon's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.02 up to $27.46. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

REV.US volatility(beta: 0.9)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 Revlon's is 0.898. This would suggest that Revlon's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
