Shorting AutoWeb shares

There are currently 270,534 AutoWeb shares held short by investors – that's known as AutoWeb's "short interest". This figure is 14.7% down from 316,994 last month.

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

AutoWeb's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AutoWeb's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AutoWeb shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AutoWeb shares traded daily (recently around 69190.281329923). AutoWeb's SIR currently stands at 3.91. In other words for every 100,000 AutoWeb shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3910 shares are currently held short.

However AutoWeb's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AutoWeb shares, or, against the total number of tradable AutoWeb shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AutoWeb's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AutoWeb shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0302% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AutoWeb shares, roughly 30 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 AutoWeb.

AutoWeb share dividends

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

Have AutoWeb's shares ever split?

AutoWeb's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 11 July 2012. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AutoWeb shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for AutoWeb shares which in turn could have impacted AutoWeb's share price.

AutoWeb share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AutoWeb's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.28 up to $5.97. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AUTO.US volatility(beta: 2.26)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 AutoWeb's is 2.2568. This would suggest that AutoWeb's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
