Shorting IQIYI shares

There are currently 57.3 million IQIYI shares held short by investors – that's known as IQIYI's "short interest". This figure is 3.7% up from 55.3 million last month.

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

IQIYI's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

IQIYI's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IQIYI shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IQIYI shares traded daily (recently around 6.6 million). IQIYI's SIR currently stands at 8.74. In other words for every 100,000 IQIYI shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8740 shares are currently held short.

However IQIYI's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IQIYI shares, or, against the total number of tradable IQIYI shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IQIYI's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IQIYI shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1829% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IQIYI shares, roughly 183 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 IQIYI.

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

IQIYI share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, IQIYI's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.22 up to $28.97. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IQ.US volatility(beta: 0.82)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 IQIYI's is 0.8152. This would suggest that IQIYI's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
