  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "BLNK.US"

There are currently 8.7 million Blink Charging shares held short by investors – that's known as Blink Charging's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% down from 8.8 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 13.8 million). Blink Charging's SIR currently stands at 0.63. In other words for every 100,000 Blink Charging shares traded daily on the market, roughly 630 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 0.21% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Blink Charging shares in existence, roughly 210 shares are currently held short) or 0.2487% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Blink Charging shares, roughly 249 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 Blink Charging.

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 $1.25 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 4.4626. This would suggest that Blink Charging's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
