Shorting Gevo shares

There are currently 6.3 million Gevo shares held short by investors – that's known as Gevo's "short interest". This figure is 58.8% up from 4.0 million last month.

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

Gevo's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Gevo's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gevo shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gevo shares traded daily (recently around 19.7 million). Gevo's SIR currently stands at 0.32. In other words for every 100,000 Gevo shares traded daily on the market, roughly 320 shares are currently held short.

However Gevo's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gevo shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gevo shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gevo's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gevo shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0852% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gevo shares, roughly 85 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 Gevo.

Gevo share dividends

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

Have Gevo's shares ever split?

Gevo's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 4 June 2018. So if you had owned 20 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 Gevo shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gevo shares which in turn could have impacted Gevo's share price.

Gevo share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Gevo's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.46 up to $2.91. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Gevo's is 2.7656. This would suggest that Gevo's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
