Shorting Calithera Biosciences shares

There are currently 2.2 million Calithera Biosciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Calithera Biosciences's "short interest". This figure is 28.3% down from 3.1 million last month.

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

Calithera Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Calithera Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Calithera Biosciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Calithera Biosciences shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Calithera Biosciences's SIR currently stands at 1.89. In other words for every 100,000 Calithera Biosciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1890 shares are currently held short.

However Calithera Biosciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Calithera Biosciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Calithera Biosciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Calithera Biosciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Calithera Biosciences shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0354% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Calithera Biosciences shares, roughly 35 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 Calithera Biosciences.

Have Calithera Biosciences's shares ever split?

Calithera Biosciences's shares were split on a 1:48 basis on 18 September 2014. So if you had owned 48 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 Calithera Biosciences shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Calithera Biosciences shares which in turn could have impacted Calithera Biosciences's share price.

Calithera Biosciences share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Calithera Biosciences's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.78 up to $5.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CALA.US volatility(beta: 1.61)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 Calithera Biosciences's is 1.6148. This would suggest that Calithera Biosciences's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
