There are currently 12.8 million Blink Charging stocks held short by investors – that's known as Blink Charging's "short interest". This figure is 5.2% up from 12.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Blink Charging stocks can be evaluated.

Blink Charging's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Blink Charging's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Blink Charging stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Blink Charging stocks traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Blink Charging's SIR currently stands at 6.49. In other words for every 100,000 Blink Charging stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 6490 stocks are currently held short.

However Blink Charging's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Blink Charging stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Blink Charging stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Blink Charging's short interest could be expressed as 0.3% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Blink Charging stocks in existence, roughly 300 stocks are currently held short) or 0.3545% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Blink Charging stocks, roughly 355 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Blink Charging.

Have Blink Charging stocks ever split?

Blink Charging stocks were split on a 1:50 basis on 29 August 2017. 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 Blink Charging stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4900% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Blink Charging stocks which in turn could have impacted Blink Charging's stock price.

Blink Charging stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Blink Charging's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $5.8 up to $64.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Blink Charging's is 4.1768. This would suggest that Blink Charging's stocks are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
