There are currently 738,377 Stein Mart stocks held short by investors – that's known as Stein Mart's "short interest". This figure is 22.4% up from 603,433 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Stein Mart stocks can be evaluated.

Stein Mart's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Stein Mart's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Stein Mart stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Stein Mart stocks traded daily (recently around 4.1 million). Stein Mart's SIR currently stands at 0.18. In other words for every 100,000 Stein Mart stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 180 stocks are currently held short.

However Stein Mart's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Stein Mart stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Stein Mart stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Stein Mart's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Stein Mart stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0172% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Stein Mart stocks, roughly 17 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 Stein Mart.

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

Stein Mart stock price volatility

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Stein Mart's is -0.0005. This would suggest that Stein Mart's stocks have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Stein Mart has bucked the trend.
