Shorting BlackBerry shares

There are currently 40.2 million BlackBerry shares held short by investors – that's known as BlackBerry's "short interest". This figure is 9.1% up from 36.8 million last month.

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

BlackBerry's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BlackBerry's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BlackBerry shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BlackBerry shares traded daily (recently around 10.1 million). BlackBerry's SIR currently stands at 3.99. In other words for every 100,000 BlackBerry shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3990 shares are currently held short.

However BlackBerry's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BlackBerry shares, or, against the total number of tradable BlackBerry shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BlackBerry's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BlackBerry shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0784% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BlackBerry shares, roughly 78 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 BlackBerry.

BlackBerry share dividends

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

Have BlackBerry's shares ever split?

BlackBerry's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 20 August 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BlackBerry shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BlackBerry shares which in turn could have impacted BlackBerry's share price.

BlackBerry share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BlackBerry's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.44 up to $28.77. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BB.US volatility(beta: 1.05)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while BlackBerry's is 1.0539. This would suggest that BlackBerry's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
