Shorting Compugen shares

There are currently 4.7 million Compugen shares held short by investors – that's known as Compugen's "short interest". This figure is 73.4% up from 2.7 million last month.

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

Compugen's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Compugen's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Compugen shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Compugen shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Compugen's SIR currently stands at 4.1. In other words for every 100,000 Compugen shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4100 shares are currently held short.

However Compugen's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Compugen shares, or, against the total number of tradable Compugen shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Compugen's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Compugen shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0819% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Compugen shares, roughly 82 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 Compugen.

Compugen share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Compugen's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.62 up to $19.9. 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 Compugen's is 2.5795. This would suggest that Compugen's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
