Shorting Genetic Technologies shares

There are currently 1.0 million Genetic Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Genetic Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 75.9% up from 595,469 last month.

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

Genetic Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Genetic Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genetic Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genetic Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Genetic Technologies's SIR currently stands at 0.55. In other words for every 100,000 Genetic Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 550 shares are currently held short.

However Genetic Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genetic Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genetic Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genetic Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genetic Technologies shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genetic Technologies shares, roughly 0 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 Genetic Technologies.

Genetic Technologies share dividends

We're not expecting Genetic Technologies to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Genetic Technologies's shares ever split?

Genetic Technologies's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 15 August 2019. So if you had owned 4 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 Genetic Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Genetic Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Genetic Technologies's share price.

Genetic Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Genetic Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.4083 up to $5.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GENE.US volatility(beta: 1.01)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 Genetic Technologies's is 1.0098. This would suggest that Genetic Technologies'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).
