There are currently 2.7 million India Globalization Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 0.4% down from 2.7 million last month.

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

Short interest ratio (SIR)

India Globalization Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of India Globalization Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of India Globalization Capital shares traded daily (recently around 15.7 million). India Globalization Capital's SIR currently stands at 0.17. In other words for every 100,000 India Globalization Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 170 shares are currently held short.

However India Globalization Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of India Globalization Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable India Globalization Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case India Globalization Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 India Globalization Capital shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0614% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable India Globalization Capital shares, roughly 61 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 India Globalization Capital.

However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for India Globalization Capital shares which in turn could have impacted India Globalization Capital's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, India Globalization Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.01 up to $3.7. 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 MKT average) beta is 1, while India Globalization Capital's is 4.6288. This would suggest that India Globalization Capital's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
