Shorting Zix Corporation shares

There are currently 2.9 million Zix Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Zix Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% down from 3.0 million last month.

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

Zix Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zix Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zix Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zix Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 737845.10309278). Zix Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.88. In other words for every 100,000 Zix Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3880 shares are currently held short.

However Zix Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zix Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zix Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zix Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zix Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0438% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zix Corporation shares, roughly 44 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 Zix Corporation.

Have Zix Corporation's shares ever split?

Zix Corporation's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 28 June 1993. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Zix Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Zix Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Zix Corporation's share price.

Zix Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Zix Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.84 up to $9.29. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ZIXI.US volatility(beta: 1.1)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 Zix Corporation's is 1.0953. This would suggest that Zix Corporation'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).
