Shorting GEE Group shares

There are currently 7,464 GEE Group shares held short by investors – that's known as GEE Group's "short interest". This figure is 68.9% down from 24,022 last month.

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

GEE Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

GEE Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GEE Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GEE Group shares traded daily (recently around 373200). GEE Group's SIR currently stands at 0.02. In other words for every 100,000 GEE Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 20 shares are currently held short.

However GEE Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GEE Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable GEE Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GEE Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GEE Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0005% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GEE Group shares, roughly 1 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 GEE Group.

We're not expecting GEE Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have GEE Group's shares ever split?

GEE Group's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 9 October 2015. So if you had owned 10 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 GEE Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for GEE Group shares which in turn could have impacted GEE Group's share price.

GEE Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, GEE Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.17 up to $1.65. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

JOB.US volatility(beta: 2.39)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while GEE Group's is 2.3874. This would suggest that GEE Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
