Shorting BioCardia shares

There are currently 12,431 BioCardia shares held short by investors – that's known as BioCardia's "short interest". This figure is 10.4% up from 11,265 last month.

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

BioCardia's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BioCardia's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BioCardia shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BioCardia shares traded daily (recently around inf billion). BioCardia's SIR currently stands at 0. In other words for every 100,000 BioCardia shares traded daily on the market, roughly 0 shares are currently held short.

However BioCardia's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BioCardia shares, or, against the total number of tradable BioCardia shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BioCardia's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BioCardia shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BioCardia shares, roughly 2 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 BioCardia.

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

Have BioCardia's shares ever split?

BioCardia's shares were split on a 1:9 basis on 6 June 2019. So if you had owned 9 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 BioCardia shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 800% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for BioCardia shares which in turn could have impacted BioCardia's share price.

BioCardia share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BioCardia's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.91 up to $6.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BCDA.US volatility(beta: 2.03)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 BioCardia's is 2.0343. This would suggest that BioCardia's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
