Shorting Digital Ally shares

There are currently 5.1 million Digital Ally shares held short by investors – that's known as Digital Ally's "short interest". This figure is 30% up from 4.0 million last month.

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

Digital Ally's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Digital Ally's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Digital Ally shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Digital Ally shares traded daily (recently around 13.5 million). Digital Ally's SIR currently stands at 0.38. In other words for every 100,000 Digital Ally shares traded daily on the market, roughly 380 shares are currently held short.

However Digital Ally's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Digital Ally shares, or, against the total number of tradable Digital Ally shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Digital Ally's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Digital Ally shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1479% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Digital Ally shares, roughly 148 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 Digital Ally.

Digital Ally share dividends

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

Have Digital Ally's shares ever split?

Digital Ally's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 24 August 2012. 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 Digital Ally shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Digital Ally shares which in turn could have impacted Digital Ally's share price.

Digital Ally share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Digital Ally's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.6401 up to $7.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DGLY.US volatility(beta: 0.64)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 Digital Ally's is 0.6361. This would suggest that Digital Ally's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
