Shorting Aqua Metals shares

There are currently 1.9 million Aqua Metals shares held short by investors – that's known as Aqua Metals's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% down from 1.9 million last month.

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

Aqua Metals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aqua Metals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aqua Metals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aqua Metals shares traded daily (recently around 234304.15140415). Aqua Metals's SIR currently stands at 8.19. In other words for every 100,000 Aqua Metals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8190 shares are currently held short.

However Aqua Metals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aqua Metals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aqua Metals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aqua Metals's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aqua Metals shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0326% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aqua Metals shares, roughly 33 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Aqua Metals.

AQMS.US volatility(beta: 1.26)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 Aqua Metals's is 1.2565. This would suggest that Aqua Metals's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
