Shorting Kodak shares

There are currently 6.3 million Kodak shares held short by investors – that's known as Kodak 's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% down from 6.6 million last month.

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

Kodak 's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kodak 's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kodak shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kodak shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Kodak 's SIR currently stands at 4.26. In other words for every 100,000 Kodak shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4260 shares are currently held short.

However Kodak 's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kodak shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kodak shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kodak 's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kodak shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0848% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kodak shares, roughly 85 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 Kodak .

Kodak share dividends

We're not expecting Kodak to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Kodak share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kodak 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.29 up to $13.8. 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 Kodak 's is 5.2741. This would suggest that Kodak 's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
