Shorting ShiftPixy shares

There are currently 171,389 ShiftPixy shares held short by investors – that's known as ShiftPixy's "short interest". This figure is 68.4% down from 543,121 last month.

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

ShiftPixy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ShiftPixy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ShiftPixy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ShiftPixy shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). ShiftPixy's SIR currently stands at 0.11. In other words for every 100,000 ShiftPixy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 110 shares are currently held short.

However ShiftPixy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ShiftPixy shares, or, against the total number of tradable ShiftPixy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ShiftPixy's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ShiftPixy shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.004% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ShiftPixy shares, roughly 4 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 ShiftPixy.

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

Have ShiftPixy's shares ever split?

ShiftPixy's shares were split on a 1:40 basis on 16 December 2019. So if you had owned 40 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 ShiftPixy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for ShiftPixy shares which in turn could have impacted ShiftPixy's share price.

ShiftPixy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ShiftPixy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.02 up to $17.7141. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PIXY.US volatility(beta: 1.18)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 ShiftPixy's is 1.1769. This would suggest that ShiftPixy's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
