Shorting Nuance Communications shares

There are currently 36.6 million Nuance Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Nuance Communications's "short interest". This figure is 4.5% up from 35.0 million last month.

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

Nuance Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Nuance Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nuance Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nuance Communications shares traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). Nuance Communications's SIR currently stands at 12.41. In other words for every 100,000 Nuance Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12410 shares are currently held short.

However Nuance Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nuance Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nuance Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nuance Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nuance Communications shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1171% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nuance Communications shares, roughly 117 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 Nuance Communications.

Have Nuance Communications's shares ever split?

Nuance Communications's shares were split on a 1155:1000 basis on 1 October 2019. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1155 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Nuance Communications shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 13.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nuance Communications shares which in turn could have impacted Nuance Communications's share price.

Nuance Communications share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nuance Communications's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.05 up to $55.35. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NUAN.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 Nuance Communications's is 1.2127. This would suggest that Nuance Communications's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
