Shorting Uranium Energy shares

There are currently 18.1 million Uranium Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Uranium Energy's "short interest". This figure is 4.2% down from 18.9 million last month.

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

Uranium Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Uranium Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Uranium Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Uranium Energy shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Uranium Energy's SIR currently stands at 11.61. In other words for every 100,000 Uranium Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11610 shares are currently held short.

However Uranium Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Uranium Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Uranium Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Uranium Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Uranium Energy shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0935% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Uranium Energy shares, roughly 94 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Uranium Energy.

Uranium Energy share dividends

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

Have Uranium Energy's shares ever split?

Uranium Energy's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 March 2006. 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 Uranium Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Uranium Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Uranium Energy's share price.

Uranium Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Uranium Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.35 up to $1.29. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UEC.US volatility(beta: 2.03)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 Uranium Energy's is 2.0292. This would suggest that Uranium Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
