Shorting Organovo shares

There are currently 145,381 Organovo shares held short by investors – that's known as Organovo's "short interest". This figure is 44.9% up from 100,329 last month.

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

Organovo's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Organovo's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Organovo shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Organovo shares traded daily (recently around 106897.79411765). Organovo's SIR currently stands at 1.36. In other words for every 100,000 Organovo shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1360 shares are currently held short.

However Organovo's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Organovo shares, or, against the total number of tradable Organovo shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Organovo's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Organovo shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0286% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Organovo shares, roughly 29 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 Organovo.

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

Have Organovo's shares ever split?

Organovo's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 19 August 2020. So if you had owned 20 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 Organovo shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Organovo shares which in turn could have impacted Organovo's share price.

Organovo share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Organovo's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.1933 up to $13.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ONVO.US volatility(beta: 0.95)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 Organovo's is 0.9459. This would suggest that Organovo's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
