Shorting Ideal Power shares

There are currently 127,094 Ideal Power shares held short by investors – that's known as Ideal Power's "short interest". This figure is 11.7% down from 144,000 last month.

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

Ideal Power's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ideal Power's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ideal Power shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ideal Power shares traded daily (recently around 231080). Ideal Power's SIR currently stands at 0.55. In other words for every 100,000 Ideal Power shares traded daily on the market, roughly 550 shares are currently held short.

However Ideal Power's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ideal Power shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ideal Power shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ideal Power's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ideal Power shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0226% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ideal Power shares, roughly 23 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 Ideal Power.

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

Have Ideal Power's shares ever split?

Ideal Power's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 19 August 2019. So if you had owned 10 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 Ideal Power shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ideal Power shares which in turn could have impacted Ideal Power's share price.

Ideal Power share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ideal Power's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.88 up to $24.95. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IPWR.US volatility(beta: 1.08)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 Ideal Power's is 1.0844. This would suggest that Ideal Power'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).
