Shorting Capricor Therapeutics shares

There are currently 442,735 Capricor Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Capricor Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 61.5% up from 274,188 last month.

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

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

Capricor Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Capricor Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Capricor Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 574980.51948052). Capricor Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 0.77. In other words for every 100,000 Capricor Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 770 shares are currently held short.

However Capricor Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Capricor Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Capricor Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Capricor Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Capricor Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Capricor Therapeutics shares, roughly 100 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 Capricor Therapeutics.

Have Capricor Therapeutics's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Capricor Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Capricor Therapeutics's share price.
