Shorting LiqTech International shares

There are currently 1.2 million LiqTech International shares held short by investors – that's known as LiqTech International's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% down from 1.2 million last month.

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

LiqTech International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LiqTech International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LiqTech International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LiqTech International shares traded daily (recently around 73519.770946353). LiqTech International's SIR currently stands at 16.59. In other words for every 100,000 LiqTech International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 16590 shares are currently held short.

However LiqTech International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LiqTech International shares, or, against the total number of tradable LiqTech International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LiqTech International's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LiqTech International shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0579% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LiqTech International shares, roughly 58 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against LiqTech International.

Have LiqTech International's shares ever split?

LiqTech International's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 9 April 2019. So if you had owned 4 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 LiqTech International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for LiqTech International shares which in turn could have impacted LiqTech International's share price.

LiqTech International share price volatility
