Shorting Washington Prime Group shares

There are currently 3.9 million Washington Prime Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Washington Prime Group's "short interest". This figure is 50.9% down from 7.9 million last month.

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

Washington Prime Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Washington Prime Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Washington Prime Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Washington Prime Group shares traded daily (recently around 13.5 million). Washington Prime Group's SIR currently stands at 0.29. In other words for every 100,000 Washington Prime Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 290 shares are currently held short.

However Washington Prime Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Washington Prime Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Washington Prime Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Washington Prime Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Washington Prime Group shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.161% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Washington Prime Group shares, roughly 161 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 Washington Prime Group.

Have Washington Prime Group's shares ever split?

Washington Prime Group's shares were split on a 1:9 basis on 21 December 2020. So if you had owned 9 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 Washington Prime Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 800% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Washington Prime Group shares which in turn could have impacted Washington Prime Group's share price.

Washington Prime Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Washington Prime Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.7 up to $16.5499. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WPG.US volatility(beta: 1.5)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Washington Prime Group's is 1.5044. This would suggest that Washington Prime Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
