Shorting VBI Vaccines shares
There are currently 35.2 million VBI Vaccines shares held short by investors – that's known as VBI Vaccines's "short interest". This figure is 8.8% down from 38.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting VBI Vaccines shares can be evaluated.
VBI Vaccines's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
VBI Vaccines's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VBI Vaccines shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VBI Vaccines shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). VBI Vaccines's SIR currently stands at 12.7. In other words for every 100,000 VBI Vaccines shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12700 shares are currently held short.
However VBI Vaccines's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VBI Vaccines shares, or, against the total number of tradable VBI Vaccines shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VBI Vaccines's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VBI Vaccines shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1909% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VBI Vaccines shares, roughly 191 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 VBI Vaccines.

VBI Vaccines share dividends
We're not expecting VBI Vaccines to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have VBI Vaccines's shares ever split?
VBI Vaccines's shares were split on a 1:40 basis on 1 May 2016. So if you had owned 40 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 VBI Vaccines shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for VBI Vaccines shares which in turn could have impacted VBI Vaccines's share price.
VBI Vaccines share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, VBI Vaccines's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$2.06 up to US$6.93. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while VBI Vaccines's is 1.9967. This would suggest that VBI Vaccines's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
