There are currently 349,610 Document Security Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Document Security Systems's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% down from 370,291 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Document Security Systems shares can be evaluated.
Document Security Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Document Security Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Document Security Systems shares traded daily (recently around 182088.54166667). Document Security Systems's SIR currently stands at 1.92. In other words for every 100,000 Document Security Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1920 shares are currently held short.
However Document Security Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Document Security Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Document Security Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Document Security Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Document Security Systems shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1263% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Document Security Systems shares, roughly 126 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 Document Security Systems.

We're not expecting Document Security Systems to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Document Security Systems's shares were split on a 1:30 basis on 8 May 2020. So if you had owned 30 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 Document Security Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Document Security Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Document Security Systems's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Document Security Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.675 up to $12. 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 (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Document Security Systems's is 9.2252. This would suggest that Document Security Systems's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
