Shorting Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 1.5 million Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 10.1% down from 1.6 million last month.

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

Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 206498.58356941). Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 7.06. In other words for every 100,000 Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7060 shares are currently held short.

However Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0437% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares, roughly 44 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 Eiger BioPharmaceuticals.

We're not expecting Eiger BioPharmaceuticals to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's shares ever split?

Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 22 March 2016. So if you had owned 15 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 Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eiger BioPharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's share price.

Eiger BioPharmaceuticals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.76 up to $13.99. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EIGR.US volatility(beta: 1.36)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 Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's is 1.3618. This would suggest that Eiger BioPharmaceuticals's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
