Shorting SkyWest shares

There are currently 1.1 million SkyWest shares held short by investors – that's known as SkyWest's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% up from 1.0 million last month.

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

SkyWest's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SkyWest's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SkyWest shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SkyWest shares traded daily (recently around 329749.2211838). SkyWest's SIR currently stands at 3.21. In other words for every 100,000 SkyWest shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3210 shares are currently held short.

However SkyWest's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SkyWest shares, or, against the total number of tradable SkyWest shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SkyWest's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SkyWest shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0215% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SkyWest shares, roughly 22 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 SkyWest.

Have SkyWest's shares ever split?

SkyWest's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 December 2000. 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 SkyWest shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SkyWest shares which in turn could have impacted SkyWest's share price.

SkyWest share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SkyWest's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.1 up to $61.16. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SKYW.US volatility(beta: 2.05)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 SkyWest's is 2.0511. This would suggest that SkyWest's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
