Shorting GigaMedia shares

There are currently 118,488 GigaMedia shares held short by investors – that's known as GigaMedia's "short interest". This figure is 7.3% up from 110,401 last month.

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

GigaMedia's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

GigaMedia's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GigaMedia shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GigaMedia shares traded daily (recently around 101271.79487179). GigaMedia's SIR currently stands at 1.17. In other words for every 100,000 GigaMedia shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1170 shares are currently held short.

However GigaMedia's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GigaMedia shares, or, against the total number of tradable GigaMedia shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GigaMedia's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GigaMedia shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.019% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GigaMedia shares, roughly 19 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 GigaMedia.

GigaMedia share dividends

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

Have GigaMedia's shares ever split?

GigaMedia's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 15 December 2015. So if you had owned 5 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 GigaMedia shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for GigaMedia shares which in turn could have impacted GigaMedia's share price.

GigaMedia share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, GigaMedia's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.53 up to $5.56. 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 GigaMedia's is 0.062. This would suggest that GigaMedia's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
