Shorting Cerecor shares

There are currently 1.4 million Cerecor shares held short by investors – that's known as Cerecor's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% down from 1.5 million last month.

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

Cerecor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cerecor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cerecor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cerecor shares traded daily (recently around 422958.02469136). Cerecor's SIR currently stands at 3.24. In other words for every 100,000 Cerecor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3240 shares are currently held short.

However Cerecor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cerecor shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cerecor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cerecor's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cerecor shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0304% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cerecor shares, roughly 30 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 Cerecor.

CERC.US volatility(beta: 1.68)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
