Shorting Sky Solar shares

There are currently 108,130 Sky Solar shares held short by investors – that's known as Sky Solar's "short interest". This figure is 40.2% up from 77,120 last month.

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

Sky Solar's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sky Solar's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sky Solar shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sky Solar shares traded daily (recently around 245750). Sky Solar's SIR currently stands at 0.44. In other words for every 100,000 Sky Solar shares traded daily on the market, roughly 440 shares are currently held short.

However Sky Solar's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sky Solar shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sky Solar shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sky Solar's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sky Solar shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sky Solar 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 Sky Solar.

Sky Solar share dividends

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

Have Sky Solar's shares ever split?

Sky Solar's shares were split on a 4:10 basis on 8 November 2019. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sky Solar shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 150% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sky Solar shares which in turn could have impacted Sky Solar's share price.

Sky Solar share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sky Solar's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.01 up to $10.255. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SKYS.US volatility(beta: 1.33)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 Sky Solar's is 1.3271. This would suggest that Sky Solar's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
