Shorting Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares

There are currently 19.4 million Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.5% up from 18.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3.9 million). Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.94. In other words for every 100,000 Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4940 shares are currently held short.

However Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.46% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares in existence, roughly 460 shares are currently held short) or 0.7687% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares, roughly 769 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 Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation.

Have Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's shares ever split?

Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 November 2004. 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 Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's share price.

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's is 1.5815. This would suggest that Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
