Shorting VSE Corporation shares
There are currently 139,621 VSE Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as VSE Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% up from 138,830 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting VSE Corporation shares can be evaluated.
VSE Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
VSE Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VSE Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VSE Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 44607.348242812). VSE Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.13. In other words for every 100,000 VSE Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3130 shares are currently held short.
However VSE Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VSE Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable VSE Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VSE Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VSE Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0133% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VSE Corporation shares, roughly 13 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 VSE Corporation.

We're not expecting VSE Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have VSE Corporation's shares ever split?
VSE Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 August 2016. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your VSE Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for VSE Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted VSE Corporation's share price.
VSE Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, VSE Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.4831 up to $53.3419. 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 VSE Corporation's is 1.5223. This would suggest that VSE Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
