Shorting Yellow Corporation shares

There are currently 1.4 million Yellow Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Yellow Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 6.9% up from 1.3 million last month.

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

Yellow Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Yellow Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Yellow Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Yellow Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Yellow Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.38. In other words for every 100,000 Yellow Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1380 shares are currently held short.

However Yellow Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Yellow Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Yellow Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Yellow Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Yellow Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0294% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Yellow Corporation shares, roughly 29 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 Yellow Corporation.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Yellow Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 29900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Yellow Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Yellow Corporation's share price.

Yellow Corporation share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Yellow Corporation's is 3.1521. This would suggest that Yellow Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
