Shorting Vericity shares

There are currently 8,786 Vericity shares held short by investors – that's known as Vericity's "short interest". This figure is 12.1% up from 7,836 last month.

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

Vericity's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vericity's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vericity shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vericity shares traded daily (recently around 8965.306122449). Vericity's SIR currently stands at 0.98. In other words for every 100,000 Vericity shares traded daily on the market, roughly 980 shares are currently held short.

However Vericity's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vericity shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vericity shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vericity's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vericity shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0039% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vericity 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 Vericity.

VERY.US volatility(beta: 1.07)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 Vericity's is 1.0695. This would suggest that Vericity'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).
