Shorting BELLUS Health shares

There are currently 1.4 million BELLUS Health shares held short by investors – that's known as BELLUS Health's "short interest". This figure is 9.5% down from 1.5 million last month.

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

BELLUS Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BELLUS Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BELLUS Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BELLUS Health shares traded daily (recently around 498505.81818182). BELLUS Health's SIR currently stands at 2.75. In other words for every 100,000 BELLUS Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2750 shares are currently held short.

However BELLUS Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BELLUS Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable BELLUS Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BELLUS Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BELLUS Health shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0309% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BELLUS Health shares, roughly 31 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 BELLUS Health.

Have BELLUS Health's shares ever split?

BELLUS Health's shares were split on a 277:1000 basis on 18 August 2019. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 277 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BELLUS Health shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 261% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for BELLUS Health shares which in turn could have impacted BELLUS Health's share price.

BELLUS Health share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BELLUS Health's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.12 up to $4.73. 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 BELLUS Health's is -0.6792. This would suggest that BELLUS Health's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, BELLUS Health has bucked the trend.
