There are currently 127,154 Eastside Distilling stocks held short by investors – that's known as Eastside Distilling's "short interest". This figure is 19.9% up from 106,021 last month.

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

Eastside Distilling's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Eastside Distilling's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eastside Distilling stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eastside Distilling stocks traded daily (recently around 149592.94117647). Eastside Distilling's SIR currently stands at 0.85. In other words for every 100,000 Eastside Distilling stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 850 stocks are currently held short.

However Eastside Distilling's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eastside Distilling stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Eastside Distilling stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eastside Distilling's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Eastside Distilling stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0126% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Eastside Distilling stocks, roughly 13 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Eastside Distilling.

Have Eastside Distilling stocks ever split?

Eastside Distilling stocks were split on a 1:3 basis on 14 June 2017. So if you had owned 3 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 Eastside Distilling stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Eastside Distilling stocks which in turn could have impacted Eastside Distilling's stock price.

Eastside Distilling stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Eastside Distilling's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $1.045 up to $3.99. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EAST.US volatility(beta: 1.71)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Eastside Distilling's is 1.7133. This would suggest that Eastside Distilling's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
