Shorting Alterity Therapeutics shares

There are currently 169,231 Alterity Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Alterity Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 18% up from 143,387 last month.

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

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

Alterity Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alterity Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alterity Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 313390.74074074). Alterity Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 0.54. In other words for every 100,000 Alterity Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 540 shares are currently held short.

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

Have Alterity Therapeutics's shares ever split?

Alterity Therapeutics's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 23 March 2016. So if you had owned 6 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 Alterity Therapeutics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alterity Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Alterity Therapeutics's share price.

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Alterity Therapeutics's is 1.0371. This would suggest that Alterity Therapeutics's shares 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).
