Shorting BIO-key International shares

There are currently 809,623 BIO-key International shares held short by investors – that's known as BIO-key International's "short interest". This figure is 20.2% down from 1.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BIO-key International shares can be evaluated.

BIO-key International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BIO-key International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BIO-key International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BIO-key International shares traded daily (recently around 490680.60606061). BIO-key International's SIR currently stands at 1.65. In other words for every 100,000 BIO-key International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1650 shares are currently held short.

However BIO-key International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BIO-key International shares, or, against the total number of tradable BIO-key International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BIO-key International's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BIO-key International shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1123% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BIO-key International shares, roughly 112 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 BIO-key International.

BIO-key International share dividends

We're not expecting BIO-key International to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have BIO-key International's shares ever split?

BIO-key International's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 19 November 2020. So if you had owned 8 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 BIO-key International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for BIO-key International shares which in turn could have impacted BIO-key International's share price.

BIO-key International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BIO-key International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.75 up to $9.52. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BKYI.US volatility(beta: 1.01)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 BIO-key International's is 1.0061. This would suggest that BIO-key International's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
