Shorting Agile Therapeutics shares

There are currently 3.2 million Agile Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Agile Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 24% down from 4.3 million last month.

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

Agile Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Agile Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Agile Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Agile Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Agile Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 1.94. In other words for every 100,000 Agile Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1940 shares are currently held short.

However Agile Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Agile Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Agile Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Agile Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Agile Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0458% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Agile Therapeutics shares, roughly 46 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 Agile Therapeutics.

Agile Therapeutics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Agile Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.35 up to $4.7652. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AGRX.US volatility(beta: 1.42)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Agile Therapeutics's is 1.4247. This would suggest that Agile Therapeutics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
