Shorting Genius Brands International shares

There are currently 46.0 million Genius Brands International shares held short by investors – that's known as Genius Brands International's "short interest". This figure is 6.7% down from 49.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Genius Brands International shares can be evaluated.

Genius Brands International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Genius Brands International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genius Brands International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genius Brands International shares traded daily (recently around 4.7 million). Genius Brands International's SIR currently stands at 9.82. In other words for every 100,000 Genius Brands International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9820 shares are currently held short.

However Genius Brands International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genius Brands International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genius Brands International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genius Brands International's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genius Brands International shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.1615% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genius Brands International shares, roughly 162 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Genius Brands International.

Have Genius Brands International's shares ever split?

Genius Brands International's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 8 November 2016. So if you had owned 3 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 Genius Brands International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Genius Brands International shares which in turn could have impacted Genius Brands International's share price.

Genius Brands International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Genius Brands International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.01 up to $3.06. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GNUS.US volatility(beta: 1.84)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 Genius Brands International's is 1.8354. This would suggest that Genius Brands International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
