Shorting Lexaria Bioscience shares

There are currently 338,984 Lexaria Bioscience shares held short by investors – that's known as Lexaria Bioscience's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% down from 358,862 last month.

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

Lexaria Bioscience's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lexaria Bioscience's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lexaria Bioscience shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lexaria Bioscience shares traded daily (recently around 325946.15384615). Lexaria Bioscience's SIR currently stands at 1.04. In other words for every 100,000 Lexaria Bioscience shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1040 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Lexaria Bioscience's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Lexaria Bioscience's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lexaria Bioscience shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lexaria Bioscience shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lexaria Bioscience's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lexaria Bioscience shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0726% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lexaria Bioscience shares, roughly 73 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 Lexaria Bioscience.

Have Lexaria Bioscience's shares ever split?

Lexaria Bioscience's shares were split on a 1:30 basis on 11 January 2021. 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 Lexaria Bioscience shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lexaria Bioscience shares which in turn could have impacted Lexaria Bioscience's share price.

Lexaria Bioscience share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lexaria Bioscience's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.11 up to $10.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LEXX.US volatility(beta: 1.51)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 Lexaria Bioscience's is 1.5079. This would suggest that Lexaria Bioscience's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

To put Lexaria Bioscience's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
