Ring Energy's PEG ratio

Ring Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.82. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Ring Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Ring Energy shares

There are currently 11.5 million Ring Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Ring Energy's "short interest". This figure is 26.3% up from 9.1 million last month.

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

Ring Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ring Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ring Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ring Energy shares traded daily (recently around 7.7 million). Ring Energy's SIR currently stands at 1.49. In other words for every 100,000 Ring Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1490 shares are currently held short.

However Ring Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ring Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ring Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ring Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ring Energy shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1487% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ring Energy shares, roughly 149 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 Ring Energy.

Ring Energy share dividends

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

Have Ring Energy's shares ever split?

Ring Energy's shares were split on a 1:18 basis on 2 June 2008. So if you had owned 18 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 Ring Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ring Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Ring Energy's share price.

Ring Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ring Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.4301 up to $2.85. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

REI.US volatility(beta: 2.42)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Ring Energy's is 2.4226. This would suggest that Ring Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
