How to short and sell Radius Health stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "RDUS.US"

There are currently 5.0 million Radius Health stocks held short by investors – that's known as Radius Health's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% down from 5.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Radius Health stocks can be evaluated.

Radius Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Radius Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Radius Health stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Radius Health stocks traded daily (recently around 289986.81898067). Radius Health's SIR currently stands at 17.07. In other words for every 100,000 Radius Health stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 17070 stocks are currently held short.

However Radius Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Radius Health stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Radius Health stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Radius Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Radius Health stocks in existence, roughly 100 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1059% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Radius Health stocks, roughly 106 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the stock price and a discouraging interest in betting against Radius Health.

Have Radius Health stocks ever split?

Radius Health stocks were split on a 1:2 basis on 24 April 2014. So if you had owned 2 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 Radius Health stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Radius Health stocks which in turn could have impacted Radius Health's stock price.

Radius Health stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Radius Health's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $10.1511 up to $25.82. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RDUS.US volatility(beta: 0.97)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Radius Health's is 0.9733. This would suggest that Radius Health's stocks are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
