Shorting Aptinyx shares

There are currently 1.7 million Aptinyx shares held short by investors – that's known as Aptinyx's "short interest". This figure is 12.5% down from 1.9 million last month.

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

Aptinyx's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aptinyx's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aptinyx shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aptinyx shares traded daily (recently around 854817.67676768). Aptinyx's SIR currently stands at 1.98. In other words for every 100,000 Aptinyx shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1980 shares are currently held short.

However Aptinyx's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aptinyx shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aptinyx shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aptinyx's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aptinyx shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0386% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aptinyx shares, roughly 39 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 Aptinyx.

APTX.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 Aptinyx's is 1.4532. This would suggest that Aptinyx's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
