Shorting Superconductor Technologies shares

There are currently 243,898 Superconductor Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Superconductor Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 61.3% up from 151,198 last month.

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

Superconductor Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Superconductor Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Superconductor Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Superconductor Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Superconductor Technologies's SIR currently stands at 0.24. In other words for every 100,000 Superconductor Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 240 shares are currently held short.

However Superconductor Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Superconductor Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Superconductor Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Superconductor Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Superconductor Technologies shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0886% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Superconductor Technologies shares, roughly 89 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 Superconductor Technologies.

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

Have Superconductor Technologies's shares ever split?

Superconductor Technologies's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 10 September 2020. 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 Superconductor Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Superconductor Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Superconductor Technologies's share price.

Superconductor Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Superconductor Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.77 up to $5.77. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SCON.US volatility(beta: 1.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (OTCQB average) beta is 1, while Superconductor Technologies's is 1.5129. This would suggest that Superconductor Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
