Shorting Biocept shares
There are currently 835,383 Biocept shares held short by investors – that's known as Biocept's "short interest". This figure is 23.5% up from 676,309 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Biocept shares can be evaluated.
Biocept's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Biocept's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Biocept shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Biocept shares traded daily (recently around 647583.72093023). Biocept's SIR currently stands at 1.29. In other words for every 100,000 Biocept shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1290 shares are currently held short.
However Biocept's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Biocept shares, or, against the total number of tradable Biocept shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Biocept's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Biocept shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0624% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Biocept shares, roughly 62 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 Biocept.

Have Biocept's shares ever split?
Biocept's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 7 September 2020. 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 Biocept shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Biocept shares which in turn could have impacted Biocept's share price.
Biocept share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Biocept's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.46 up to $13. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Biocept's is 0.8041. This would suggest that Biocept's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
