Shorting Aytu BioScience shares

There are currently 11.5 million Aytu BioScience shares held short by investors – that's known as Aytu BioScience's "short interest". This figure is 128.9% up from 5.0 million 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 3.4 million). Aytu BioScience's SIR currently stands at 3.33. In other words for every 100,000 Aytu BioScience shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3330 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 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aytu BioScience shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0929% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aytu BioScience shares, roughly 93 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 1:20 basis on 13 August 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 Aytu BioScience shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% 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
