Shorting Antares Pharma shares

There are currently 4.2 million Antares Pharma shares held short by investors – that's known as Antares Pharma's "short interest". This figure is 13.3% down from 4.8 million last month.

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

Antares Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Antares Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Antares Pharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Antares Pharma shares traded daily (recently around 826686.33663366). Antares Pharma's SIR currently stands at 5.05. In other words for every 100,000 Antares Pharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5050 shares are currently held short.

However Antares Pharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Antares Pharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable Antares Pharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Antares Pharma's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Antares Pharma shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0256% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Antares Pharma shares, roughly 26 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Antares Pharma.

Have Antares Pharma's shares ever split?

Antares Pharma's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 29 January 1999. So if you had owned 5 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 Antares Pharma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Antares Pharma shares which in turn could have impacted Antares Pharma'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 Antares Pharma's is 1.2306. This would suggest that Antares Pharma'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).
