Shorting Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 444,556 Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 35.8% up from 327,470 last month.

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

Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 116988.42105263). Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 3.8. In other words for every 100,000 Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3800 shares are currently held short.

However Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0881% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 88 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 Bellicum Pharmaceuticals.

Have Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's shares ever split?

Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 6 February 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 Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bellicum Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's share price.

Bellicum Pharmaceuticals share price volatility

BLCM.US volatility(beta: 1.85)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 Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's is 1.85. This would suggest that Bellicum Pharmaceuticals's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
