Shorting iBio shares

There are currently 19.9 million iBio shares held short by investors – that's known as iBio's "short interest". This figure is 15.4% up from 17.3 million last month.

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

iBio's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

iBio's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of iBio shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of iBio shares traded daily (recently around 15.7 million). iBio's SIR currently stands at 1.27. In other words for every 100,000 iBio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1270 shares are currently held short.

However iBio's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of iBio shares, or, against the total number of tradable iBio shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case iBio's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 iBio shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0917% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable iBio 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 iBio.

iBio share dividends

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

Have iBio's shares ever split?

iBio's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 10 June 2018. So if you had owned 10 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 iBio shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for iBio shares which in turn could have impacted iBio's share price.

iBio share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, iBio's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$1.03 up to US$7.45. 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 MKT average) beta is 1, while iBio's is -6.2158. This would suggest that iBio's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, iBio has bucked the trend.
