Shorting Arcadia Biosciences shares

There are currently 360,998 Arcadia Biosciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Arcadia Biosciences's "short interest". This figure is 32.8% down from 536,943 last month.

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

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

Arcadia Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arcadia Biosciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arcadia Biosciences shares traded daily (recently around 202807.86516854). Arcadia Biosciences's SIR currently stands at 1.78. In other words for every 100,000 Arcadia Biosciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1780 shares are currently held short.

However Arcadia Biosciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arcadia Biosciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arcadia Biosciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arcadia Biosciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arcadia Biosciences shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0208% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arcadia Biosciences shares, roughly 21 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 Arcadia Biosciences.

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

Have Arcadia Biosciences's shares ever split?

Arcadia Biosciences's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 24 January 2018. So if you had owned 20 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 Arcadia Biosciences shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Arcadia Biosciences shares which in turn could have impacted Arcadia Biosciences's share price.

Arcadia Biosciences share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Arcadia Biosciences's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.3 up to $6.5621. 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 Arcadia Biosciences's is -0.6268. This would suggest that Arcadia Biosciences's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Arcadia Biosciences has bucked the trend.
