Shorting Oblong shares

There are currently 27,254 Oblong shares held short by investors – that's known as Oblong's "short interest". This figure is 19.2% up from 22,855 last month.

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

Oblong's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Oblong's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oblong shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oblong shares traded daily (recently around 129780.95238095). Oblong's SIR currently stands at 0.21. In other words for every 100,000 Oblong shares traded daily on the market, roughly 210 shares are currently held short.

However Oblong's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oblong shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oblong shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oblong's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oblong shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oblong 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 Oblong.

Oblong share dividends

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

Have Oblong's shares ever split?

Oblong's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 17 April 2019. So if you had owned 10 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 Oblong shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Oblong shares which in turn could have impacted Oblong's share price.

Oblong share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Oblong's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.91 up to $7.25. 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 Oblong's is 2.5879. This would suggest that Oblong's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
