There are currently 36.8 million BlackBerry stocks held short by investors â€“ thats known as BlackBerrys short interest. This figure is 0.7% down from 37.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BlackBerry stocks can be evaluated.
BlackBerrys short interest ratio (SIR)
BlackBerrys short interest ratio (SIR) is the quantity of BlackBerry stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BlackBerry stocks traded daily (recently around 7.8 million). BlackBerrys SIR currently stands at 4.74. In other words for every 100,000 BlackBerry stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4740 stocks are currently held short.
However BlackBerrys short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BlackBerry stocks, or, against the total number of tradable BlackBerry stocks (the shares that arent held by insiders or major long-term shareholders â€“ also known as the float). In this case BlackBerrys short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 BlackBerry stocks in existence, roughly 70 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0719% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable BlackBerry stocks, roughly 72 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against BlackBerry.

Have BlackBerry stocks ever split?
BlackBerry stocks were split on a 3:1 basis on 21 August 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day youd have owned 3 shares. This wouldnt directly have changed the overall worth of your BlackBerry stocks â€“ just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for BlackBerry stocks which in turn could have impacted BlackBerrys stock price.
BlackBerry stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, BlackBerrys stocks have ranged in value from as little as $4.37 up to $28.77. A popular way to gauge a stocks volatility is its beta.
Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while BlackBerrys is 1.0007. This would suggest that BlackBerrys stocks are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
