Shorting Biomerica shares

There are currently 794,282 Biomerica shares held short by investors – that's known as Biomerica's "short interest". This figure is 18.5% down from 974,481 last month.

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

Biomerica's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Biomerica's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Biomerica shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Biomerica shares traded daily (recently around 60911.196319018). Biomerica's SIR currently stands at 13.04. In other words for every 100,000 Biomerica shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13040 shares are currently held short.

However Biomerica's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Biomerica shares, or, against the total number of tradable Biomerica shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Biomerica's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Biomerica shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0756% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Biomerica shares, roughly 76 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 Biomerica.

Biomerica share dividends

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

Have Biomerica's shares ever split?

Biomerica's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 13 November 1994. So if you had owned 2 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 Biomerica shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Biomerica shares which in turn could have impacted Biomerica's share price.

Biomerica share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Biomerica's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.3 up to $8.15. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Biomerica's is -0.6603. This would suggest that Biomerica's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Biomerica has bucked the trend.
