Shorting MobileIron shares

There are currently 3.2 million MobileIron shares held short by investors – that's known as MobileIron's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% down from 3.3 million last month.

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

MobileIron's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MobileIron's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MobileIron shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MobileIron shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). MobileIron's SIR currently stands at 1.58. In other words for every 100,000 MobileIron shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1580 shares are currently held short.

However MobileIron's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MobileIron shares, or, against the total number of tradable MobileIron shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MobileIron's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MobileIron shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0407% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MobileIron shares, roughly 41 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 MobileIron.

MobileIron share dividends

We're not expecting MobileIron to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have MobileIron's shares ever split?

MobileIron's shares were split on a 5:7 basis on 27 May 2014. So if you had owned 7 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your MobileIron shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 40% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for MobileIron shares which in turn could have impacted MobileIron's share price.

MobileIron share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MobileIron's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.94 up to $7.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MOBL.US volatility(beta: 1.22)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 MobileIron's is 1.2244. This would suggest that MobileIron's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
