Shorting VerifyMe shares

There are currently 76,665 VerifyMe shares held short by investors – that's known as VerifyMe's "short interest". This figure is 8.3% up from 70,764 last month.

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

VerifyMe's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

VerifyMe's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VerifyMe shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VerifyMe shares traded daily (recently around 139390.90909091). VerifyMe's SIR currently stands at 0.55. In other words for every 100,000 VerifyMe shares traded daily on the market, roughly 550 shares are currently held short.

However VerifyMe's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VerifyMe shares, or, against the total number of tradable VerifyMe shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VerifyMe's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VerifyMe shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0156% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VerifyMe shares, roughly 16 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 VerifyMe.

Have VerifyMe's shares ever split?

VerifyMe's shares were split on a 1:50 basis on 18 June 2020. So if you had owned 50 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 VerifyMe shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for VerifyMe shares which in turn could have impacted VerifyMe's share price.

VerifyMe share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, VerifyMe's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.29 up to $7.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
