Shorting Asensus Surgical shares

There are currently 6.7 million Asensus Surgical shares held short by investors – that's known as Asensus Surgical's "short interest". This figure is 26.9% down from 9.2 million last month.

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

Asensus Surgical's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Asensus Surgical's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Asensus Surgical shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Asensus Surgical shares traded daily (recently around 48.2 million). Asensus Surgical's SIR currently stands at 0.14. In other words for every 100,000 Asensus Surgical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 140 shares are currently held short.

However Asensus Surgical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Asensus Surgical shares, or, against the total number of tradable Asensus Surgical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Asensus Surgical's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Asensus Surgical shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0302% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Asensus Surgical shares, roughly 30 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 Asensus Surgical.

Have Asensus Surgical's shares ever split?

Asensus Surgical's shares were split on a 1:13 basis on 11 December 2019. So if you had owned 13 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 Asensus Surgical shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Asensus Surgical shares which in turn could have impacted Asensus Surgical's share price.

Asensus Surgical share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Asensus Surgical's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.3515 up to $6.88. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TRXC.US volatility(beta: 1.98)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Asensus Surgical's is 1.9772. This would suggest that Asensus Surgical's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
