There are currently 4.0 million Ocean Power Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Ocean Power Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 8.8% up from 3.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ocean Power Technologies shares can be evaluated.
Ocean Power Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ocean Power Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ocean Power Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Ocean Power Technologies's SIR currently stands at 1.68. In other words for every 100,000 Ocean Power Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1680 shares are currently held short.
However Ocean Power Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ocean Power Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ocean Power Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ocean Power Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ocean Power Technologies shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0662% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ocean Power Technologies shares, roughly 66 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 Ocean Power Technologies.

We're not expecting Ocean Power Technologies to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Ocean Power Technologies's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 11 March 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 Ocean Power Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ocean Power Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Ocean Power Technologies's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Ocean Power Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.54 up to $7.3. 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 Ocean Power Technologies's is 2.0286. This would suggest that Ocean Power Technologies's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
