Shorting Cronos Group shares

There are currently 3.2 million Cronos Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Cronos Group's "short interest". This figure is 10.6% up from 2.9 million last month.

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

Cronos Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cronos Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cronos Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cronos Group shares traded daily (recently around 276082.11521926). Cronos Group's SIR currently stands at 11.63. In other words for every 100,000 Cronos Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11630 shares are currently held short.

However Cronos Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cronos Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cronos Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cronos Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cronos Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0164% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cronos Group shares, roughly 16 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 Cronos Group.

Cronos Group share dividends

We're not expecting Cronos Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Cronos Group's shares ever split?

Cronos Group's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 17 December 2014. So if you had owned 7 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 Cronos Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cronos Group shares which in turn could have impacted Cronos Group's share price.

Cronos Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cronos Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$6.69 up to C$20.08. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CRON.TO volatility(beta: 1.54)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while Cronos Group's is 1.542. This would suggest that Cronos Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
