Shorting Tenneco shares

There are currently 3.2 million Tenneco shares held short by investors – that's known as Tenneco's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% down from 3.3 million last month.

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

Tenneco's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tenneco's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tenneco shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tenneco shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Tenneco's SIR currently stands at 1.75. In other words for every 100,000 Tenneco shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1750 shares are currently held short.

However Tenneco's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tenneco shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tenneco shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tenneco's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tenneco shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0482% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tenneco shares, roughly 48 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 Tenneco.

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

Have Tenneco's shares ever split?

Tenneco's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 4 November 1999. 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 Tenneco shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tenneco shares which in turn could have impacted Tenneco's share price.

Tenneco share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tenneco's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.76 up to $13.12. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Tenneco's is 2.7077. This would suggest that Tenneco's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
