Shorting Precipio shares
There are currently 1.9 million Precipio shares held short by investors – that's known as Precipio's "short interest". This figure is 132.7% up from 830,056 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Precipio shares can be evaluated.
Precipio's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Precipio's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Precipio shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Precipio shares traded daily (recently around 48.3 million). Precipio's SIR currently stands at 0.04. In other words for every 100,000 Precipio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 40 shares are currently held short.
However Precipio's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Precipio shares, or, against the total number of tradable Precipio shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Precipio's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Precipio shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0612% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Precipio shares, roughly 61 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 Precipio.

Precipio share dividends
We're not expecting Precipio to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Precipio's shares ever split?
Precipio's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 28 April 2019. So if you had owned 15 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 Precipio shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Precipio shares which in turn could have impacted Precipio's share price.
Precipio share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Precipio's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$0.92 up to US$5.75. 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 Precipio's is 2.644. This would suggest that Precipio's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
