Shorting Exicure shares

There are currently 2.5 million Exicure shares held short by investors – that's known as Exicure's "short interest". This figure is 13.7% down from 2.9 million last month.

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

Exicure's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Exicure's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Exicure shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Exicure shares traded daily (recently around 393739.78328173). Exicure's SIR currently stands at 6.46. In other words for every 100,000 Exicure shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6460 shares are currently held short.

However Exicure's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Exicure shares, or, against the total number of tradable Exicure shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Exicure's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Exicure shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0425% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Exicure shares, roughly 43 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 Exicure.

Exicure share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Exicure's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.09 up to $2.83. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

XCUR.US volatility(beta: 1.34)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 Exicure's is 1.3402. This would suggest that Exicure's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
