Shorting Agilysys shares

There are currently 541,523 Agilysys shares held short by investors – that's known as Agilysys's "short interest". This figure is 10.6% down from 605,573 last month.

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

Agilysys's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Agilysys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Agilysys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Agilysys shares traded daily (recently around 147553.95095368). Agilysys's SIR currently stands at 3.67. In other words for every 100,000 Agilysys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3670 shares are currently held short.

However Agilysys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Agilysys shares, or, against the total number of tradable Agilysys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Agilysys's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Agilysys shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0346% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Agilysys shares, roughly 35 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 Agilysys.

Have Agilysys's shares ever split?

Agilysys's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 6 September 1995. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Agilysys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Agilysys shares which in turn could have impacted Agilysys's share price.
