Is Koss Corporation under- or over-valued?

Shorting Koss Corporation shares
There are currently 440,262 Koss Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Koss Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% up from 429,729 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Koss Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Koss Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Koss Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Koss Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Koss Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million). Koss Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.15. In other words for every 100,000 Koss Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 150 shares are currently held short.
However Koss Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Koss Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Koss Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Koss Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Koss Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0818% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Koss Corporation shares, roughly 82 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 Koss Corporation.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Koss Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Koss Corporation's share price.
