Shorting VirTra shares

There are currently 23,341 VirTra shares held short by investors – that's known as VirTra's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% down from 24,467 last month.

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

VirTra's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

VirTra's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VirTra shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VirTra shares traded daily (recently around 29176.25). VirTra's SIR currently stands at 0.8. In other words for every 100,000 VirTra shares traded daily on the market, roughly 800 shares are currently held short.

However VirTra's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VirTra shares, or, against the total number of tradable VirTra shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VirTra's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VirTra shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0032% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VirTra shares, roughly 3 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 VirTra.

VirTra share dividends

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

Have VirTra's shares ever split?

VirTra's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 2 March 2018. So if you had owned 2 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 VirTra shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for VirTra shares which in turn could have impacted VirTra's share price.

VirTra share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, VirTra's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.01 up to $5.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VTSI.US volatility(beta: 1.17)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 VirTra's is 1.1742. This would suggest that VirTra'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).
