Shorting aTyr Pharma shares

There are currently 1.6 million aTyr Pharma shares held short by investors – that's known as aTyr Pharma's "short interest". This figure is 42.3% down from 2.7 million last month.

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

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

aTyr Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of aTyr Pharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of aTyr Pharma shares traded daily (recently around 14.2 million). aTyr Pharma's SIR currently stands at 0.11. In other words for every 100,000 aTyr Pharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 110 shares are currently held short.

However aTyr Pharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of aTyr Pharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable aTyr Pharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case aTyr Pharma's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 aTyr Pharma shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.102% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable aTyr Pharma shares, roughly 102 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 aTyr Pharma.

Have aTyr Pharma's shares ever split?

aTyr Pharma's shares were split on a 1:14 basis on 30 June 2019. So if you had owned 14 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 aTyr Pharma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for aTyr Pharma shares which in turn could have impacted aTyr Pharma's share price.

aTyr Pharma share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, aTyr Pharma's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.93 up to $13.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LIFE.US volatility(beta: 1.61)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 aTyr Pharma's is 1.6079. This would suggest that aTyr Pharma's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
