Shorting Sierra Metals shares

There are currently 117,655 Sierra Metals shares held short by investors – that's known as Sierra Metals's "short interest". This figure is 67.5% up from 70,252 last month.

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

Sierra Metals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sierra Metals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sierra Metals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sierra Metals shares traded daily (recently around 588275). Sierra Metals's SIR currently stands at 0.2. In other words for every 100,000 Sierra Metals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 200 shares are currently held short.

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

Have Sierra Metals's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sierra Metals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sierra Metals shares which in turn could have impacted Sierra Metals's share price.

Sierra Metals share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Sierra Metals's is 1.9889. This would suggest that Sierra Metals's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
