Shorting Canopy Growth shares

There are currently 11.8 million Canopy Growth shares held short by investors – that's known as Canopy Growth's "short interest". This figure is 10.3% down from 13.2 million last month.

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

Canopy Growth's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Canopy Growth's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Canopy Growth shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Canopy Growth shares traded daily (recently around 940765.21048451). Canopy Growth's SIR currently stands at 12.59. In other words for every 100,000 Canopy Growth shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12590 shares are currently held short.

However Canopy Growth's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Canopy Growth shares, or, against the total number of tradable Canopy Growth shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Canopy Growth's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Canopy Growth shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0427% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Canopy Growth shares, roughly 43 shares are currently held short).

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

Canopy Growth share dividends

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

Have Canopy Growth's shares ever split?

Canopy Growth's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 3 April 2014. So if you had owned 5 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 Canopy Growth shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Canopy Growth shares which in turn could have impacted Canopy Growth's share price.

Canopy Growth share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Canopy Growth's shares have ranged in value from as little as CADC$18.44 up to CADC$64.71. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WEED.TO volatility(beta: 2.09)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while Canopy Growth's is 2.0868. This would suggest that Canopy Growth's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
