Shorting PAR Technology Corporation shares

There are currently 4.6 million PAR Technology Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as PAR Technology Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 42.4% up from 3.2 million last month.

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

PAR Technology Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PAR Technology Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PAR Technology Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PAR Technology Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 534981.49882904). PAR Technology Corporation's SIR currently stands at 8.54. In other words for every 100,000 PAR Technology Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8540 shares are currently held short.

However PAR Technology Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PAR Technology Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable PAR Technology Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PAR Technology Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.17% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PAR Technology Corporation shares in existence, roughly 170 shares are currently held short) or 0.18% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PAR Technology Corporation shares, roughly 180 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against PAR Technology Corporation.

PAR Technology Corporation share dividends

We're not expecting PAR Technology Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have PAR Technology Corporation's shares ever split?

PAR Technology Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 8 January 2006. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your PAR Technology Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PAR Technology Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted PAR Technology Corporation's share price.

PAR Technology Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PAR Technology Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $36 up to $90.35. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PAR.US volatility(beta: 1.9)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while PAR Technology Corporation's is 1.8952. This would suggest that PAR Technology Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
