Shorting Dolphin Entertainment shares

There are currently 49,599 Dolphin Entertainment shares held short by investors – that's known as Dolphin Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 52.6% up from 32,503 last month.

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

Dolphin Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dolphin Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dolphin Entertainment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dolphin Entertainment shares traded daily (recently around 261047.36842105). Dolphin Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 0.19. In other words for every 100,000 Dolphin Entertainment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 190 shares are currently held short.

However Dolphin Entertainment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dolphin Entertainment shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dolphin Entertainment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dolphin Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dolphin Entertainment shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0083% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dolphin Entertainment shares, roughly 8 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 Dolphin Entertainment.

Dolphin Entertainment share dividends

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

Have Dolphin Entertainment's shares ever split?

Dolphin Entertainment's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 27 November 2020. 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 Dolphin Entertainment shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dolphin Entertainment shares which in turn could have impacted Dolphin Entertainment's share price.

Dolphin Entertainment share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dolphin Entertainment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.634 up to $9.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DLPN.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 Dolphin Entertainment's is 1.0021. This would suggest that Dolphin Entertainment'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).
