Shorting Lantronix shares

There are currently 43,166 Lantronix shares held short by investors – that's known as Lantronix's "short interest". This figure is 23.2% down from 56,240 last month.

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

Lantronix's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lantronix's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lantronix shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lantronix shares traded daily (recently around 159874.07407407). Lantronix's SIR currently stands at 0.27. In other words for every 100,000 Lantronix shares traded daily on the market, roughly 270 shares are currently held short.

However Lantronix's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lantronix shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lantronix shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lantronix's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lantronix shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.002% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lantronix shares, roughly 2 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 Lantronix.

Have Lantronix's shares ever split?

Lantronix's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 21 December 2009. So if you had owned 6 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 Lantronix shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lantronix shares which in turn could have impacted Lantronix's share price.

Lantronix share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lantronix's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.58 up to $6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LTRX.US volatility(beta: 2.02)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 Lantronix's is 2.0197. This would suggest that Lantronix's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
