Shorting Sierra Oncology shares

There are currently 13,639 Sierra Oncology shares held short by investors – that's known as Sierra Oncology's "short interest". This figure is 8.5% up from 12,574 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 13776.767676768). Sierra Oncology's SIR currently stands at 0.99. In other words for every 100,000 Sierra Oncology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 990 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% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sierra Oncology shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0036% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sierra Oncology shares, roughly 4 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 Sierra Oncology.

Have Sierra Oncology's shares ever split?

Sierra Oncology's shares were split on a 1:40 basis on 23 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 $8.545 up to $22. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SRRA.US volatility(beta: 1.37)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 1.3709. This would suggest that Sierra Oncology's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
