Shorting Equillium shares

There are currently 480,722 Equillium shares held short by investors – that's known as Equillium's "short interest". This figure is 29.8% down from 684,913 last month.

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

Equillium's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Equillium's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Equillium shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Equillium shares traded daily (recently around 763050.79365079). Equillium's SIR currently stands at 0.63. In other words for every 100,000 Equillium shares traded daily on the market, roughly 630 shares are currently held short.

However Equillium's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Equillium shares, or, against the total number of tradable Equillium shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Equillium's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Equillium shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0335% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Equillium shares, roughly 34 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 Equillium.

Equillium share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Equillium's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.2 up to $19.22. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EQ.US volatility(beta: 1.73)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 Equillium's is 1.731. This would suggest that Equillium's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
