Shorting TSR shares

There are currently 4,742 TSR shares held short by investors – that's known as TSR's "short interest". This figure is 62.2% down from 12,530 last month.

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

TSR's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TSR's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TSR shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TSR shares traded daily (recently around 158066.66666667). TSR's SIR currently stands at 0.03. In other words for every 100,000 TSR shares traded daily on the market, roughly 30 shares are currently held short.

However TSR's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TSR shares, or, against the total number of tradable TSR shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TSR's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TSR shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0047% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TSR 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 TSR.

TSR share dividends

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

Have TSR's shares ever split?

TSR's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 30 November 2010. So if you had owned 2 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 TSR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for TSR shares which in turn could have impacted TSR's share price.

TSR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TSR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.7 up to $6.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TSRI.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 TSR's is 1.2063. This would suggest that TSR's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
