Shorting Sierra Oncology shares

There are currently 100,358 Sierra Oncology shares held short by investors – that's known as Sierra Oncology's "short interest". This figure is 310.6% up from 24,444 last month.

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

Sierra Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sierra Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sierra Oncology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sierra Oncology shares traded daily (recently around 12623.647798742). Sierra Oncology's SIR currently stands at 7.95. In other words for every 100,000 Sierra Oncology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7950 shares are currently held short.

However Sierra Oncology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sierra Oncology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sierra Oncology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sierra Oncology's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sierra Oncology shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0248% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sierra Oncology shares, roughly 25 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Sierra Oncology.

Have Sierra Oncology's shares ever split?

Sierra Oncology's shares were split on a 1:40 basis on 22 January 2020. So if you had owned 40 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 Sierra Oncology shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sierra Oncology shares which in turn could have impacted Sierra Oncology's share price.

Sierra Oncology share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sierra Oncology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.02 up to $21.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SRRA.US volatility(beta: 1.01)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 Sierra Oncology's is 1.0114. This would suggest that Sierra Oncology'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).
