There are currently 13.2 million 22nd Century Group stocks held short by investors – that's known as 22nd Century Group's "short interest". This figure is 17.5% up from 11.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting 22nd Century Group stocks can be evaluated.

22nd Century Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

22nd Century Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of 22nd Century Group stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of 22nd Century Group stocks traded daily (recently around 3.1 million). 22nd Century Group's SIR currently stands at 4.26. In other words for every 100,000 22nd Century Group stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4260 stocks are currently held short.

However 22nd Century Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of 22nd Century Group stocks, or, against the total number of tradable 22nd Century Group stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case 22nd Century Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 22nd Century Group stocks in existence, roughly 80 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0932% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable 22nd Century Group stocks, roughly 93 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against 22nd Century Group.

Have 22nd Century Group stocks ever split?

22nd Century Group stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 November 2010. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your 22nd Century Group stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for 22nd Century Group stocks which in turn could have impacted 22nd Century Group's stock price.

22nd Century Group stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, 22nd Century Group's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $0.55 up to $6.07. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

XXII.US volatility(beta: 1.83)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while 22nd Century Group's is 1.8286. This would suggest that 22nd Century Group's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
