Shorting Oncolytics Biotech shares

There are currently 164,312 Oncolytics Biotech shares held short by investors – that's known as Oncolytics Biotech's "short interest". This figure is 12.9% down from 188,639 last month.

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

Oncolytics Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Oncolytics Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oncolytics Biotech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oncolytics Biotech shares traded daily (recently around 152140.74074074). Oncolytics Biotech's SIR currently stands at 1.08. In other words for every 100,000 Oncolytics Biotech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1080 shares are currently held short.

However Oncolytics Biotech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oncolytics Biotech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oncolytics Biotech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oncolytics Biotech's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oncolytics Biotech shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.003% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oncolytics Biotech shares, roughly 3 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 Oncolytics Biotech.

Have Oncolytics Biotech's shares ever split?

Oncolytics Biotech's shares were split on a 10:95 basis on 24 May 2018. So if you had owned 95 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Oncolytics Biotech shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 850% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Oncolytics Biotech shares which in turn could have impacted Oncolytics Biotech's share price.

Oncolytics Biotech share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Oncolytics Biotech's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.87 up to $4.83. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ONCY.US volatility(beta: 1.84)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 Oncolytics Biotech's is 1.8449. This would suggest that Oncolytics Biotech's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
