Shorting ChemoCentryx shares

There are currently 5.5 million ChemoCentryx shares held short by investors – that's known as ChemoCentryx's "short interest". This figure is 4% up from 5.3 million last month.

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

ChemoCentryx's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ChemoCentryx's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ChemoCentryx shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ChemoCentryx shares traded daily (recently around 681087.68656716). ChemoCentryx's SIR currently stands at 8.04. In other words for every 100,000 ChemoCentryx shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8040 shares are currently held short.

However ChemoCentryx's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ChemoCentryx shares, or, against the total number of tradable ChemoCentryx shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ChemoCentryx's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ChemoCentryx shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.118% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ChemoCentryx shares, roughly 118 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against ChemoCentryx.

CCXI.US volatility(beta: 1.68)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 ChemoCentryx's is 1.6757. This would suggest that ChemoCentryx's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
