Shorting KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 2.0 million KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as KalVista Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 1.8% down from 2.0 million last month.

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

KalVista Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

KalVista Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 330449.07251265). KalVista Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 5.93. In other words for every 100,000 KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5930 shares are currently held short.

However KalVista Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case KalVista Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1087% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 109 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against KalVista Pharmaceuticals.

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

Have KalVista Pharmaceuticals's shares ever split?

KalVista Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 1:14 basis on 21 November 2016. So if you had owned 14 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 KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for KalVista Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted KalVista Pharmaceuticals's share price.

KalVista Pharmaceuticals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, KalVista Pharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.6905 up to $43.0799. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KALV.US volatility(beta: 2)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 KalVista Pharmaceuticals's is 1.9954. This would suggest that KalVista Pharmaceuticals's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
