Shorting SharpSpring shares

There are currently 314,894 SharpSpring shares held short by investors – that's known as SharpSpring's "short interest". This figure is 7.4% down from 340,221 last month.

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

SharpSpring's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SharpSpring's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SharpSpring shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SharpSpring shares traded daily (recently around 69513.024282561). SharpSpring's SIR currently stands at 4.53. In other words for every 100,000 SharpSpring shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4530 shares are currently held short.

However SharpSpring's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SharpSpring shares, or, against the total number of tradable SharpSpring shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SharpSpring's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SharpSpring shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0331% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SharpSpring shares, roughly 33 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 SharpSpring.

SharpSpring share dividends

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

Have SharpSpring's shares ever split?

SharpSpring's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 27 December 2013. So if you had owned 5 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 SharpSpring shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SharpSpring shares which in turn could have impacted SharpSpring's share price.

SharpSpring share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SharpSpring's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.02 up to $13.945. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SHSP.US volatility(beta: 1.52)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 SharpSpring's is 1.5201. This would suggest that SharpSpring's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
