Shorting RPC shares

There are currently 8.6 million RPC shares held short by investors – that's known as RPC's "short interest". This figure is 17.7% up from 7.3 million last month.

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

RPC's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

RPC's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RPC shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RPC shares traded daily (recently around 972069.96625422). RPC's SIR currently stands at 8.89. In other words for every 100,000 RPC shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8890 shares are currently held short.

However RPC's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RPC shares, or, against the total number of tradable RPC shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RPC's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RPC shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.1367% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RPC shares, roughly 137 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against RPC.

RPC share dividends

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

Have RPC's shares ever split?

RPC's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 March 2012. 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 RPC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for RPC shares which in turn could have impacted RPC's share price.

RPC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, RPC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.28 up to $7.43. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RES.US volatility(beta: 1.94)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 RPC's is 1.9407. This would suggest that RPC's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
