Shorting Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares

There are currently 5.3 million Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Lineage Cell Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 38.6% up from 3.8 million last month.

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

Lineage Cell Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lineage Cell Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Lineage Cell Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 3.18. In other words for every 100,000 Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3180 shares are currently held short.

However Lineage Cell Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lineage Cell Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0444% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares, roughly 44 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 Lineage Cell Therapeutics.

Have Lineage Cell Therapeutics's shares ever split?

Lineage Cell Therapeutics's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 30 October 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lineage Cell Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Lineage Cell Therapeutics's share price.

Lineage Cell Therapeutics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lineage Cell Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.7 up to $3.13. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LCTX.US volatility(beta: 1.85)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Lineage Cell Therapeutics's is 1.8533. This would suggest that Lineage Cell Therapeutics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
