Shorting Aptose Biosciences shares

There are currently 2.9 million Aptose Biosciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Aptose Biosciences's "short interest". This figure is 4.1% down from 3.0 million last month.

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

Aptose Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aptose Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aptose Biosciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aptose Biosciences shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Aptose Biosciences's SIR currently stands at 1.59. In other words for every 100,000 Aptose Biosciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1590 shares are currently held short.

However Aptose Biosciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aptose Biosciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aptose Biosciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aptose Biosciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aptose Biosciences shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0424% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aptose Biosciences shares, roughly 42 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 Aptose Biosciences.

Aptose Biosciences share dividends

We're not expecting Aptose Biosciences to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Aptose Biosciences's shares ever split?

Aptose Biosciences's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 5 October 2014. So if you had owned 12 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 Aptose Biosciences shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aptose Biosciences shares which in turn could have impacted Aptose Biosciences's share price.

Aptose Biosciences share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Aptose Biosciences's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.75 up to $7.27. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

APTO.US volatility(beta: 1.23)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Aptose Biosciences's is 1.2301. This would suggest that Aptose Biosciences's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
