Shorting Akari Therapeutics shares

There are currently 158,031 Akari Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Akari Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 16.7% down from 189,747 last month.

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

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

Akari Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Akari Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Akari Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 405207.69230769). Akari Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 0.39. In other words for every 100,000 Akari Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 390 shares are currently held short.

However Akari Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Akari Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Akari Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Akari Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Akari Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Akari Therapeutics shares, roughly 0 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 Akari Therapeutics.

Have Akari Therapeutics's shares ever split?

Akari Therapeutics's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 17 September 2015. 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 Akari Therapeutics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Akari Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Akari Therapeutics's share price.

Akari Therapeutics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Akari Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.87 up to $4.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AKTX.US volatility(beta: 1.44)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 Akari Therapeutics's is 1.4424. This would suggest that Akari 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).
