Shorting Marathon Patent Group shares

There are currently 6.6 million Marathon Patent Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Marathon Patent Group's "short interest". This figure is 61.6% up from 4.1 million last month.

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

Marathon Patent Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Marathon Patent Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Marathon Patent Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Marathon Patent Group shares traded daily (recently around 10.7 million). Marathon Patent Group's SIR currently stands at 0.62. In other words for every 100,000 Marathon Patent Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 620 shares are currently held short.

However Marathon Patent Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marathon Patent Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Marathon Patent Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marathon Patent Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Marathon Patent Group shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1313% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Marathon Patent Group shares, roughly 131 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 Marathon Patent Group.

Have Marathon Patent Group's shares ever split?

Marathon Patent Group's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 8 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 Marathon Patent Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Marathon Patent Group shares which in turn could have impacted Marathon Patent Group's share price.

Marathon Patent Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Marathon Patent Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.3522 up to $5.25. 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 Marathon Patent Group's is 2.8343. This would suggest that Marathon Patent Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
