Shorting Avinger shares

There are currently 1.3 million Avinger shares held short by investors – that's known as Avinger's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% down from 1.4 million last month.

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

Avinger's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Avinger's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avinger shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avinger shares traded daily (recently around 722004.34782609). Avinger's SIR currently stands at 1.84. In other words for every 100,000 Avinger shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1840 shares are currently held short.

However Avinger's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avinger shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avinger shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avinger's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avinger shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.014% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avinger shares, roughly 14 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 Avinger.

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

Have Avinger's shares ever split?

Avinger's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 23 June 2019. So if you had owned 10 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 Avinger shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Avinger shares which in turn could have impacted Avinger's share price.

Avinger share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Avinger's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.2139 up to $2.67. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AVGR.US volatility(beta: 1.75)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 Avinger's is 1.7508. This would suggest that Avinger's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
