Shorting Heat Biologics shares

There are currently 2.1 million Heat Biologics shares held short by investors – that's known as Heat Biologics's "short interest". This figure is 10.7% down from 2.4 million last month.

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

Heat Biologics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Heat Biologics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Heat Biologics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Heat Biologics shares traded daily (recently around 334128.63849765). Heat Biologics's SIR currently stands at 6.39. In other words for every 100,000 Heat Biologics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6390 shares are currently held short.

However Heat Biologics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Heat Biologics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Heat Biologics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Heat Biologics's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Heat Biologics shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0878% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Heat Biologics shares, roughly 88 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 Heat Biologics.

Heat Biologics share dividends

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

Have Heat Biologics's shares ever split?

Heat Biologics's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 10 December 2020. 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 Heat Biologics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Heat Biologics shares which in turn could have impacted Heat Biologics's share price.

Heat Biologics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Heat Biologics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.22 up to $12.46. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HTBX.US volatility(beta: 0.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Heat Biologics's is 0.5063. This would suggest that Heat Biologics's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
