Shorting iCAD shares

There are currently 1.1 million iCAD shares held short by investors – that's known as iCAD's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% up from 1.1 million last month.

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

iCAD's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

iCAD's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of iCAD shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of iCAD shares traded daily (recently around 244187.75055679). iCAD's SIR currently stands at 4.49. In other words for every 100,000 iCAD shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4490 shares are currently held short.

However iCAD's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of iCAD shares, or, against the total number of tradable iCAD shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case iCAD's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 iCAD shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0526% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable iCAD shares, roughly 53 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 iCAD.

iCAD share dividends

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

Have iCAD's shares ever split?

iCAD's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 16 August 2012. 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 iCAD shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for iCAD shares which in turn could have impacted iCAD's share price.

iCAD share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, iCAD's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.91 up to $15.31. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ICAD.US volatility(beta: 1.35)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 iCAD's is 1.3491. This would suggest that iCAD's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
