Shorting BSQUARE Corporation shares

There are currently 9,055 BSQUARE Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as BSQUARE Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 35.3% up from 6,693 last month.

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

BSQUARE Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BSQUARE Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BSQUARE Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BSQUARE Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 75458.333333333). BSQUARE Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.12. In other words for every 100,000 BSQUARE Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 120 shares are currently held short.

However BSQUARE Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BSQUARE Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable BSQUARE Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BSQUARE Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BSQUARE Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0008% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BSQUARE Corporation shares, roughly 1 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 BSQUARE Corporation.

Have BSQUARE Corporation's shares ever split?

BSQUARE Corporation's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 7 October 2005. So if you had owned 4 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 BSQUARE Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for BSQUARE Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted BSQUARE Corporation's share price.

BSQUARE Corporation share price volatility
