Shorting Identiv shares

There are currently 301,094 Identiv shares held short by investors – that's known as Identiv's "short interest". This figure is 12.7% up from 267,070 last month.

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

Identiv's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Identiv's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Identiv shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Identiv shares traded daily (recently around 161878.49462366). Identiv's SIR currently stands at 1.86. In other words for every 100,000 Identiv shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1860 shares are currently held short.

However Identiv's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Identiv shares, or, against the total number of tradable Identiv shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Identiv's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Identiv shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0199% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Identiv shares, roughly 20 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 Identiv.

Have Identiv's shares ever split?

Identiv's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 27 May 2014. 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 Identiv shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Identiv shares which in turn could have impacted Identiv's share price.

Identiv share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Identiv's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.1101 up to $7.0393. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

INVE.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 Identiv's is 1.4495. This would suggest that Identiv's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
