Shorting Blink Charging shares
There are currently 12.9 million Blink Charging shares held short by investors – that's known as Blink Charging's "short interest". This figure is 5.1% down from 13.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Blink Charging shares can be evaluated.
Blink Charging's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Blink Charging's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Blink Charging shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Blink Charging shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Blink Charging's SIR currently stands at 8.04. In other words for every 100,000 Blink Charging shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8040 shares are currently held short.
However Blink Charging's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Blink Charging shares, or, against the total number of tradable Blink Charging shares (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 0.31% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Blink Charging shares in existence, roughly 310 shares are currently held short) or 0.3548% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Blink Charging shares, roughly 355 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Blink Charging.
Blink Charging share dividends
We're not expecting Blink Charging to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Blink Charging's shares ever split?
Blink Charging's shares 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 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Blink Charging shares which in turn could have impacted Blink Charging's share price.
Blink Charging share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Blink Charging's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.3301 up to $64.5. 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 Blink Charging's is 4.1646. This would suggest that Blink Charging's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
