Shorting Kopin Corporation shares

There are currently 4.2 million Kopin Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Kopin Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 14.4% up from 3.7 million last month.

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

Kopin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kopin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kopin Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kopin Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 5.3 million). Kopin Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.8. In other words for every 100,000 Kopin Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 800 shares are currently held short.

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

Have Kopin Corporation's shares ever split?

Kopin Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 July 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kopin Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kopin Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kopin Corporation's share price.

Kopin Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kopin Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.4509 up to $13.62. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
