Shorting Cryoport shares

There are currently 7.4 million Cryoport shares held short by investors – that's known as Cryoport's "short interest". This figure is 1% down from 7.5 million last month.

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

Cryoport's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cryoport's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cryoport shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cryoport shares traded daily (recently around 730500.88495575). Cryoport's SIR currently stands at 10.17. In other words for every 100,000 Cryoport shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10170 shares are currently held short.

However Cryoport's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cryoport shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cryoport shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cryoport's short interest could be expressed as 0.19% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cryoport shares in existence, roughly 190 shares are currently held short) or 0.2153% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cryoport shares, roughly 215 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Cryoport.

Cryoport share dividends

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

Have Cryoport's shares ever split?

Cryoport's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 19 May 2015. So if you had owned 12 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 Cryoport shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cryoport shares which in turn could have impacted Cryoport's share price.

Cryoport share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cryoport's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.01 up to $63.36. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CYRX.US volatility(beta: 1.33)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 Cryoport's is 1.3328. This would suggest that Cryoport's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
