There are currently 119,213 SemiLEDs shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 78.6% down from 557,284 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SemiLEDs shares can be evaluated.
SemiLEDs's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SemiLEDs shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SemiLEDs shares traded daily (recently around 11.9 million). SemiLEDs's SIR currently stands at 0.01. In other words for every 100,000 SemiLEDs shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10 shares are currently held short.
However SemiLEDs's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SemiLEDs shares, or, against the total number of tradable SemiLEDs shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SemiLEDs's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SemiLEDs shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.054% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SemiLEDs shares, roughly 54 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 SemiLEDs.

We're not expecting SemiLEDs to pay a dividend over the next 12 months. However, you can browse other dividend-paying shares in our guide.
SemiLEDs's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 17 April 2016. So if you had owned 10 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 SemiLEDs shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SemiLEDs shares which in turn could have impacted SemiLEDs's share price.
Over the last 12 months, SemiLEDs's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.51 up to $31.44. 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 SemiLEDs's is 1.369. This would suggest that SemiLEDs's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
