Shorting Usio shares

There are currently 50,229 Usio shares held short by investors – that's known as Usio's "short interest". This figure is 226.4% up from 15,389 last month.

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

Usio's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Usio's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Usio shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Usio shares traded daily (recently around 456627.27272727). Usio's SIR currently stands at 0.11. In other words for every 100,000 Usio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 110 shares are currently held short.

However Usio's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Usio shares, or, against the total number of tradable Usio shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Usio's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Usio shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.002% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Usio shares, roughly 2 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 Usio.

Usio share dividends

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

Have Usio's shares ever split?

Usio's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 23 July 2015. So if you had owned 15 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 Usio shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Usio shares which in turn could have impacted Usio's share price.

Usio share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Usio's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.752 up to $3.59. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

USIO.US volatility(beta: 1.58)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 Usio's is 1.5774. This would suggest that Usio's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
