Shorting Kaspien shares

There are currently 13,512 Kaspien shares held short by investors – that's known as Kaspien's "short interest". This figure is 89.1% up from 7,147 last month.

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

Kaspien's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kaspien's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kaspien shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kaspien shares traded daily (recently around 46593.103448276). Kaspien's SIR currently stands at 0.29. In other words for every 100,000 Kaspien shares traded daily on the market, roughly 290 shares are currently held short.

However Kaspien's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kaspien shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kaspien shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kaspien's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kaspien shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0096% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kaspien shares, roughly 10 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 Kaspien.

Kaspien share dividends

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

Have Kaspien's shares ever split?

Kaspien's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 14 August 2019. So if you had owned 20 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 Kaspien shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kaspien shares which in turn could have impacted Kaspien's share price.

Kaspien share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kaspien's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.6248 up to $51.5. 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 Kaspien's is 0.2311. This would suggest that Kaspien's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
