Shorting Curis shares

There are currently 287,283 Curis shares held short by investors – that's known as Curis's "short interest". This figure is 50.2% down from 576,669 last month.

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

Curis's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Curis's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Curis shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Curis shares traded daily (recently around 513005.35714286). Curis's SIR currently stands at 0.56. In other words for every 100,000 Curis shares traded daily on the market, roughly 560 shares are currently held short.

However Curis's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Curis shares, or, against the total number of tradable Curis shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Curis's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Curis shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.006% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Curis shares, roughly 6 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 Curis.

Curis share dividends

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

Have Curis's shares ever split?

Curis's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 30 May 2018. So if you had owned 5 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 Curis shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Curis shares which in turn could have impacted Curis's share price.

Curis share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Curis's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.62 up to $2.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CRIS.US volatility(beta: 2.1)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 Curis's is 2.0976. This would suggest that Curis's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
