Shorting Aytu BioScience shares

There are currently 340,661 Aytu BioScience shares held short by investors – that's known as Aytu BioScience's "short interest". This figure is 1.8% up from 334,748 last month.

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

Aytu BioScience's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aytu BioScience's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aytu BioScience shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aytu BioScience shares traded daily (recently around 630853.7037037). Aytu BioScience's SIR currently stands at 0.54. In other words for every 100,000 Aytu BioScience shares traded daily on the market, roughly 540 shares are currently held short.

However Aytu BioScience's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aytu BioScience shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aytu BioScience shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aytu BioScience's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aytu BioScience shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0193% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aytu BioScience shares, roughly 19 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 Aytu BioScience.

Have Aytu BioScience's shares ever split?

Aytu BioScience's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 9 December 2020. So if you had owned 10 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 Aytu BioScience shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aytu BioScience shares which in turn could have impacted Aytu BioScience's share price.

Aytu BioScience share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Aytu BioScience's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.352 up to $29.9. 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 Aytu BioScience's is -0.2545. This would suggest that Aytu BioScience's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Aytu BioScience has bucked the trend.
