Valuing W-and-T Offshore stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of W-and-T Offshore's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Shorting W-and-T Offshore shares

There are currently 9.4 million W-and-T Offshore shares held short by investors – that's known as W-and-T Offshore's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% down from 9.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting W-and-T Offshore shares can be evaluated.

W-and-T Offshore's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

W-and-T Offshore's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of W-and-T Offshore shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of W-and-T Offshore shares traded daily (recently around 2.7 million). W-and-T Offshore's SIR currently stands at 3.52. In other words for every 100,000 W-and-T Offshore shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3520 shares are currently held short.

However W-and-T Offshore's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of W-and-T Offshore shares, or, against the total number of tradable W-and-T Offshore shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case W-and-T Offshore's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 W-and-T Offshore shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable W-and-T Offshore shares, roughly 102 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 W-and-T Offshore.

Have W-and-T Offshore's shares ever split?

W-and-T Offshore's shares were split on a 500:1 basis on 28 January 2004. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 500 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your W-and-T Offshore shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 99.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for W-and-T Offshore shares which in turn could have impacted W-and-T Offshore's share price.

W-and-T Offshore share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, W-and-T Offshore's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.35 up to $5.14. 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 W-and-T Offshore's is 3.2612. This would suggest that W-and-T Offshore's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
