Shorting Blue Apron shares

There are currently 1.7 million Blue Apron shares held short by investors – that's known as Blue Apron's "short interest". This figure is 41.7% down from 2.9 million last month.

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

Blue Apron's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Blue Apron's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Blue Apron shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Blue Apron shares traded daily (recently around 795032.40740741). Blue Apron's SIR currently stands at 2.16. In other words for every 100,000 Blue Apron shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2160 shares are currently held short.

However Blue Apron's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Blue Apron shares, or, against the total number of tradable Blue Apron shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Blue Apron's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Blue Apron shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0923% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Blue Apron shares, roughly 92 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 Blue Apron.

Blue Apron share dividends

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

Have Blue Apron's shares ever split?

Blue Apron's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 16 June 2019. So if you had owned 15 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 Blue Apron shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Blue Apron shares which in turn could have impacted Blue Apron's share price.

Blue Apron share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Blue Apron's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.52 up to $12.35. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Blue Apron's is -3.4313. This would suggest that Blue Apron's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Blue Apron has bucked the trend.
