Shorting Evolving Systems shares

There are currently 22,791 Evolving Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Evolving Systems's "short interest". This figure is 39.6% down from 37,708 last month.

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

Evolving Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Evolving Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Evolving Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Evolving Systems shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Evolving Systems's SIR currently stands at 0.02. In other words for every 100,000 Evolving Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 20 shares are currently held short.

However Evolving Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Evolving Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Evolving Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Evolving Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Evolving Systems shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0025% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Evolving Systems shares, roughly 3 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 Evolving Systems.

Have Evolving Systems's shares ever split?

Evolving Systems's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 20 July 2009. So if you had owned 2 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 Evolving Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Evolving Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Evolving Systems's share price.

Evolving Systems share price volatility

EVOL.US volatility(beta: 1.28)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 Evolving Systems's is 1.2819. This would suggest that Evolving Systems's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
