Shorting Extreme Networks shares

There are currently 4.8 million Extreme Networks shares held short by investors – that's known as Extreme Networks's "short interest". This figure is 25.2% up from 3.8 million last month.

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

Extreme Networks's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Extreme Networks's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Extreme Networks shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Extreme Networks shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Extreme Networks's SIR currently stands at 4.14. In other words for every 100,000 Extreme Networks shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4140 shares are currently held short.

However Extreme Networks's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Extreme Networks shares, or, against the total number of tradable Extreme Networks shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Extreme Networks's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Extreme Networks shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0454% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Extreme Networks shares, roughly 45 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 Extreme Networks.

Have Extreme Networks's shares ever split?

Extreme Networks's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 August 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Extreme Networks shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Extreme Networks shares which in turn could have impacted Extreme Networks's share price.

Extreme Networks share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Extreme Networks's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.43 up to $8. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EXTR.US volatility(beta: 1.9)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 Extreme Networks's is 1.8996. This would suggest that Extreme Networks's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
