There are currently 607,496 Vertex Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Vertex Energy's "short interest". This figure is 28.8% down from 853,183 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vertex Energy shares can be evaluated.
Vertex Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vertex Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vertex Energy shares traded daily (recently around 799336.84210526). Vertex Energy's SIR currently stands at 0.76. In other words for every 100,000 Vertex Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 760 shares are currently held short.
However Vertex Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vertex Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vertex Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vertex Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vertex Energy shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0163% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vertex Energy 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 Vertex Energy.

We're not expecting Vertex Energy to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Vertex Energy's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 4 May 2009. So if you had owned 10 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 Vertex Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vertex Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Vertex Energy's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Vertex Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.401 up to $1.95. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Vertex Energy's is 2.0902. This would suggest that Vertex Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
