There are currently 110,174 Lantronix stocks held short by investors – that's known as Lantronix's "short interest". This figure is 32% down from 162,014 last month.

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

Lantronix's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lantronix's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lantronix stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lantronix stocks traded daily (recently around 102012.96296296). Lantronix's SIR currently stands at 1.08. In other words for every 100,000 Lantronix stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1080 stocks are currently held short.

However Lantronix's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lantronix stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Lantronix stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lantronix's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Lantronix stocks in existence, roughly 0 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0054% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Lantronix stocks, roughly 5 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 Lantronix.

Have Lantronix stocks ever split?

Lantronix stocks were split on a 1:6 basis on 20 December 2009. So if you had owned 6 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 Lantronix stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Lantronix stocks which in turn could have impacted Lantronix's stock price.

Lantronix stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lantronix's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $3.61 up to $6.05. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LTRX.US volatility(beta: 2)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 Lantronix's is 2.0005. This would suggest that Lantronix's stocks are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
