Is Koss Corporation under- or over-valued?

Shorting Koss Corporation shares

There are currently 551,918 Koss Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Koss Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 16% up from 475,695 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Koss Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Koss Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Koss Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Koss Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Koss Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Koss Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.28. In other words for every 100,000 Koss Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 280 shares are currently held short.

However Koss Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Koss Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Koss Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Koss Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Koss Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1029% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Koss Corporation shares, roughly 103 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 Koss Corporation.

Koss Corporation share dividends

Have Koss Corporation's shares ever split?

Koss Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 December 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Koss Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Koss Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Koss Corporation's share price.

Koss Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Koss Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$1.32 up to US$105.4018. 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 Koss Corporation's is -2.4978. This would suggest that Koss Corporation's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Koss Corporation has bucked the trend.
