Shorting Sinclair Broadcast Group shares

There are currently 3.3 million Sinclair Broadcast Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Sinclair Broadcast Group's "short interest". This figure is 6.2% down from 3.5 million last month.

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

Sinclair Broadcast Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sinclair Broadcast Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sinclair Broadcast Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sinclair Broadcast Group shares traded daily (recently around 375876.93181818). Sinclair Broadcast Group's SIR currently stands at 8.8. In other words for every 100,000 Sinclair Broadcast Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8800 shares are currently held short.

However Sinclair Broadcast Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sinclair Broadcast Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sinclair Broadcast Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sinclair Broadcast Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sinclair Broadcast Group shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0766% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sinclair Broadcast Group shares, roughly 77 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 Sinclair Broadcast Group.

Have Sinclair Broadcast Group's shares ever split?

Sinclair Broadcast Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 May 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sinclair Broadcast Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sinclair Broadcast Group shares which in turn could have impacted Sinclair Broadcast Group's share price.

Sinclair Broadcast Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sinclair Broadcast Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.3064 up to $39.1082. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SBGI.US volatility(beta: 1.6)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 Sinclair Broadcast Group's is 1.5952. This would suggest that Sinclair Broadcast Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
