Shorting MoSys shares

There are currently 64,376 MoSys shares held short by investors – that's known as MoSys's "short interest". This figure is 60.5% down from 162,939 last month.

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

MoSys's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MoSys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MoSys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MoSys shares traded daily (recently around 919657.14285714). MoSys's SIR currently stands at 0.07. In other words for every 100,000 MoSys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 70 shares are currently held short.

However MoSys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MoSys shares, or, against the total number of tradable MoSys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MoSys's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MoSys shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0074% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MoSys shares, roughly 7 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 MoSys.

MoSys share dividends

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

Have MoSys's shares ever split?

MoSys's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 27 August 2019. So if you had owned 20 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 MoSys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for MoSys shares which in turn could have impacted MoSys's share price.

MoSys share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MoSys's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.36 up to $10.75. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MOSY.US volatility(beta: 2.15)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 MoSys's is 2.1497. This would suggest that MoSys's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
