Shorting Trio-Tech International shares

There are currently 3,435 Trio-Tech International shares held short by investors – that's known as Trio-Tech International's "short interest". This figure is 314.9% up from 828 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Trio-Tech International shares can be evaluated.

Trio-Tech International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Trio-Tech International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Trio-Tech International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Trio-Tech International shares traded daily (recently around 31227.272727273). Trio-Tech International's SIR currently stands at 0.11. In other words for every 100,000 Trio-Tech International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 110 shares are currently held short.

However Trio-Tech International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Trio-Tech International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Trio-Tech International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Trio-Tech International's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Trio-Tech International shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0014% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Trio-Tech International shares, roughly 1 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 Trio-Tech International.

Have Trio-Tech International's shares ever split?

Trio-Tech International's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 8 October 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Trio-Tech International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Trio-Tech International shares which in turn could have impacted Trio-Tech International's share price.

Over the last 12 months, Trio-Tech International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.4317 up to $6.41. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TRT.US volatility(beta: 1.28)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Trio-Tech International's is 1.2828. This would suggest that Trio-Tech International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
