Shorting Epizyme shares

There are currently 10.4 million Epizyme shares held short by investors – that's known as Epizyme's "short interest". This figure is 12% up from 9.3 million last month.

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

Epizyme's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Epizyme's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Epizyme shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Epizyme shares traded daily (recently around 937374.8870822). Epizyme's SIR currently stands at 11.07. In other words for every 100,000 Epizyme shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11070 shares are currently held short.

However Epizyme's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Epizyme shares, or, against the total number of tradable Epizyme shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Epizyme's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Epizyme shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1382% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Epizyme shares, roughly 138 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Epizyme.

Epizyme share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Epizyme's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.51 up to $27.82. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EPZM.US volatility(beta: 1.8)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 Epizyme's is 1.8014. This would suggest that Epizyme's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
