Shorting Genprex shares

There are currently 3.1 million Genprex shares held short by investors – that's known as Genprex's "short interest". This figure is 9.4% down from 3.5 million last month.

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

Genprex's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Genprex's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genprex shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genprex shares traded daily (recently around 881021.00840336). Genprex's SIR currently stands at 3.57. In other words for every 100,000 Genprex shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3570 shares are currently held short.

However Genprex's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genprex shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genprex shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genprex's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genprex shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0914% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genprex shares, roughly 91 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 Genprex.

Genprex share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Genprex's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.231 up to $7.03. 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 Genprex's is -0.7914. This would suggest that Genprex's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Genprex has bucked the trend.

Genprex overview

Genprex, Inc. operates as a clinical-stage gene therapy company. The company engages in developing technologies for cancer patients based upon a proprietary technology platform. Its platform technologies are designed to administer cancer-fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities. The company's lead product candidate, Oncoprex immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), has a multimodal mechanism of action whereby it interrupts cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex also block mechanisms that create drug resistance. The company was founded in 2009 and is headquartered in Austin, Texas.
