Shorting Datasea shares

There are currently 207,927 Datasea shares held short by investors – that's known as Datasea's "short interest". This figure is 169.6% up from 77,128 last month.

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

Datasea's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Datasea's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Datasea shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Datasea shares traded daily (recently around 4.2 million). Datasea's SIR currently stands at 0.05. In other words for every 100,000 Datasea shares traded daily on the market, roughly 50 shares are currently held short.

However Datasea's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Datasea shares, or, against the total number of tradable Datasea shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Datasea's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Datasea shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0321% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Datasea shares, roughly 32 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 Datasea.

Datasea share dividends

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

Have Datasea's shares ever split?

Datasea's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 1 May 2018. So if you had owned 3 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 Datasea shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Datasea shares which in turn could have impacted Datasea's share price.

Datasea share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Datasea's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.35 up to $4.93. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DTSS.US volatility(beta: 1)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 Datasea's is 1.0037. This would suggest that Datasea'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).
