Blockbuster bit the dust back in 2010 – filing for bankruptcy after consumers stopped heading out to rent physical DVDs in favour of streaming from the comfort of their homes. What remains of Blockbuster is now held by BB Liquidating, and interest in its stocks surged recently following threads on social media channels including Reddit.
We update our data regularly, but information can change between updates. Confirm details with the provider you're interested in before making a decision.
Since the stock market crash in March caused by coronavirus, Blockbuster's stock price has had significant negative movement.
Its last market close was $0.0026, which is 48.00% down on its pre-crash value of $0.005 and 2,500.00% up on the lowest point reached during the March crash when the stocks fell as low as $0.0001.
If you had bought $1,000 worth of Blockbuster stocks at the start of February 2020, those stocks would have been worth $800.00 at the bottom of the March crash, and if you held on to them, then as of the last market close they'd be worth $520.00.

There are currently 23.7 million Blockbuster shares held short by investors – that's known as Blockbuster's "short interest". This figure is 19.8% down from 29.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Blockbuster shares can be evaluated.
Blockbuster's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Blockbuster shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Blockbuster shares traded daily (recently around 5.9 million). Blockbuster's SIR currently stands at 3.98. In other words for every 100,000 Blockbuster shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3980 shares are currently held short.
However Blockbuster's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Blockbuster shares, or, against the total number of tradable Blockbuster shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Blockbuster's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Blockbuster shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1677% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Blockbuster shares, roughly 168 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 Blockbuster.
We're not expecting Blockbuster to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Blockbuster's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0.14. 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 (OTCCE average) beta is 1, while Blockbuster's is -5.5164. This would suggest that Blockbuster's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Blockbuster has bucked the trend.
