Shorting Bionano Genomics shares

There are currently 44.9 million Bionano Genomics shares held short by investors – that's known as Bionano Genomics's "short interest". This figure is 13.8% down from 52.1 million last month.

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

Bionano Genomics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bionano Genomics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bionano Genomics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bionano Genomics shares traded daily (recently around 15.5 million). Bionano Genomics's SIR currently stands at 2.89. In other words for every 100,000 Bionano Genomics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2890 shares are currently held short.

However Bionano Genomics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bionano Genomics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bionano Genomics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bionano Genomics's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bionano Genomics shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.1629% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bionano Genomics shares, roughly 163 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 Bionano Genomics.

Bionano Genomics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bionano Genomics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.4735 up to $15.69. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BNGO.US volatility(beta: 1.99)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 Bionano Genomics's is 1.9894. This would suggest that Bionano Genomics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
