Shorting Akoustis Technologies shares

There are currently 4.8 million Akoustis Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Akoustis Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% down from 4.9 million last month.

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

Akoustis Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Akoustis Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Akoustis Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Akoustis Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 476739.21182266). Akoustis Technologies's SIR currently stands at 10.15. In other words for every 100,000 Akoustis Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10150 shares are currently held short.

However Akoustis Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Akoustis Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Akoustis Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Akoustis Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Akoustis Technologies shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0987% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Akoustis Technologies shares, roughly 99 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Akoustis Technologies.

Akoustis Technologies share dividends

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

Have Akoustis Technologies's shares ever split?

Akoustis Technologies's shares were split on a 150:137 basis on 23 April 2015. So if you had owned 137 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 150 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Akoustis Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 8.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Akoustis Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Akoustis Technologies's share price.

Akoustis Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Akoustis Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.4 up to $19.15. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AKTS.US volatility(beta: 1.39)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Akoustis Technologies's is 1.3905. This would suggest that Akoustis Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
