There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Matrix Service Company stocks can be evaluated.

Matrix Service Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Matrix Service Company's SIR currently stands at 3.79. In other words for every 100,000 Matrix Service Company stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3790 stocks are currently held short.

However Matrix Service Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Matrix Service Company stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Matrix Service Company stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Matrix Service Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Matrix Service Company stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0267% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Matrix Service Company stocks, roughly 27 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 Matrix Service Company.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Matrix Service Company stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Matrix Service Company stocks which in turn could have impacted Matrix Service Company's stock price.

Matrix Service Company stock price volatility

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Matrix Service Company's is 1.7144. This would suggest that Matrix Service Company's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
