Shorting Cancer Genetics shares

There are currently 723,746 Cancer Genetics shares held short by investors – that's known as Cancer Genetics's "short interest". This figure is 46.4% up from 494,219 last month.

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

Cancer Genetics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cancer Genetics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cancer Genetics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cancer Genetics shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Cancer Genetics's SIR currently stands at 0.56. In other words for every 100,000 Cancer Genetics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 560 shares are currently held short.

However Cancer Genetics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cancer Genetics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cancer Genetics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cancer Genetics's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cancer Genetics shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0691% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cancer Genetics shares, roughly 69 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 Cancer Genetics.

Cancer Genetics share dividends

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

Have Cancer Genetics's shares ever split?

Cancer Genetics's shares were split on a 1:30 basis on 24 October 2019. So if you had owned 30 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 Cancer Genetics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cancer Genetics shares which in turn could have impacted Cancer Genetics's share price.

Cancer Genetics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cancer Genetics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.1076 up to $7.7. 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 Cancer Genetics's is 2.7237. This would suggest that Cancer Genetics's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
