Shorting Radius Health shares

There are currently 7.4 million Radius Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Radius Health's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 7.3 million last month.

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

Radius Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Radius Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Radius Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Radius Health shares traded daily (recently around 373764.39393939). Radius Health's SIR currently stands at 19.8. In other words for every 100,000 Radius Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 19800 shares are currently held short.

However Radius Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Radius Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Radius Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Radius Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Radius Health shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.2193% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Radius Health shares, roughly 219 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 Radius Health.

Radius Health share dividends

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

Have Radius Health's shares ever split?

Radius Health's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 24 April 2014. So if you had owned 2 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 Radius Health shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Radius Health shares which in turn could have impacted Radius Health's share price.

Radius Health share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Radius Health's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.151 up to $23.8798. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RDUS.US volatility(beta: 1.08)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 Radius Health's is 1.0789. This would suggest that Radius Health'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).
