There are currently 37.6 million Aurora Cannabis shares held short by investors – that's known as Aurora Cannabis's "short interest". This figure is 35.2% up from 27.8 million last month.

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

Aurora Cannabis's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aurora Cannabis's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aurora Cannabis shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aurora Cannabis shares traded daily (recently around 7.2 million). Aurora Cannabis's SIR currently stands at 5.22. In other words for every 100,000 Aurora Cannabis shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5220 shares are currently held short.

However Aurora Cannabis's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aurora Cannabis shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aurora Cannabis shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aurora Cannabis's short interest could be expressed as 0.19% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aurora Cannabis shares in existence, roughly 190 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aurora Cannabis shares, roughly 0 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 Aurora Cannabis.

Have Aurora Cannabis's shares ever split?

Aurora Cannabis's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 10 May 2020. So if you had owned 12 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 Aurora Cannabis shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aurora Cannabis shares which in turn could have impacted Aurora Cannabis's share price.

Aurora Cannabis share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Aurora Cannabis's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.71 up to $19.68. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Aurora Cannabis's is 3.179. This would suggest that Aurora Cannabis's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
