Shorting Taoping shares

There are currently 166,081 Taoping shares held short by investors – that's known as Taoping's "short interest". This figure is 21.8% up from 136,307 last month.

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

Taoping's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Taoping's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Taoping shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Taoping shares traded daily (recently around 224433.78378378). Taoping's SIR currently stands at 0.74. In other words for every 100,000 Taoping shares traded daily on the market, roughly 740 shares are currently held short.

However Taoping's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Taoping shares, or, against the total number of tradable Taoping shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Taoping's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Taoping shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0286% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Taoping shares, roughly 29 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 Taoping.

Taoping share dividends

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

Have Taoping's shares ever split?

Taoping's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 29 July 2020. So if you had owned 6 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 Taoping shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Taoping shares which in turn could have impacted Taoping's share price.

Taoping share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Taoping's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.9266 up to $14.72. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TAOP.US volatility(beta: 0.8)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 Taoping's is 0.8. This would suggest that Taoping's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
