  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "APHA.TO"

There are currently 12.0 million Tilray shares held short by investors – that's known as Tilray's "short interest". This figure is 41.7% up from 8.4 million last month.

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

Tilray's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tilray's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tilray shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tilray shares traded daily (recently around 3.4 million). Tilray's SIR currently stands at 3.52. In other words for every 100,000 Tilray shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3520 shares are currently held short.

However Tilray's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tilray shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tilray shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tilray's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tilray shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tilray shares, roughly 0 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 Tilray.

Have Tilray's shares ever split?

Tilray's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 8 December 2014. So if you had owned 10 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 Tilray shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tilray shares which in turn could have impacted Tilray's share price.

Tilray share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tilray's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$3.93 up to C$30.7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while Tilray's is 2.6198. This would suggest that Tilray's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
