Shorting SMTC Corporation shares

There are currently 102,905 SMTC Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as SMTC Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.1% up from 94,343 last month.

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

SMTC Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SMTC Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SMTC Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SMTC Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 100887.25490196). SMTC Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.02. In other words for every 100,000 SMTC Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1020 shares are currently held short.

However SMTC Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SMTC Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable SMTC Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SMTC Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SMTC Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0051% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SMTC Corporation shares, roughly 5 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 SMTC Corporation.

Have SMTC Corporation's shares ever split?

SMTC Corporation's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 3 October 2004. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SMTC Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SMTC Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted SMTC Corporation's share price.

This would suggest that SMTC Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
