Shorting Iteris shares

There are currently 488,090 Iteris shares held short by investors – that's known as Iteris's "short interest". This figure is 7.3% down from 526,464 last month.

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

Iteris's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Iteris's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Iteris shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Iteris shares traded daily (recently around 245271.35678392). Iteris's SIR currently stands at 1.99. In other words for every 100,000 Iteris shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1990 shares are currently held short.

However Iteris's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Iteris shares, or, against the total number of tradable Iteris shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Iteris's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Iteris shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.012% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Iteris shares, roughly 12 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 Iteris.

Iteris share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Iteris's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.08 up to $5.95. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ITI.US volatility(beta: 1.09)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 Iteris's is 1.0932. This would suggest that Iteris'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).
