Shorting DZS shares

There are currently 297,975 DZS shares held short by investors – that's known as DZS's "short interest". This figure is 3% up from 289,174 last month.

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

DZS's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

DZS's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DZS shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DZS shares traded daily (recently around 70946.428571429). DZS's SIR currently stands at 4.2. In other words for every 100,000 DZS shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4200 shares are currently held short.

However DZS's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DZS shares, or, against the total number of tradable DZS shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DZS's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DZS shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0175% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DZS shares, roughly 18 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 DZS.

DZS share dividends

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

Have DZS's shares ever split?

DZS's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 28 February 2017. 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 DZS shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for DZS shares which in turn could have impacted DZS's share price.

DZS share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, DZS's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.3 up to $23.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DZSI.US volatility(beta: 1.36)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 DZS's is 1.3577. This would suggest that DZS's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
