Shorting Idera Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 515,971 Idera Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Idera Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 8.4% up from 475,769 last month.

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

Idera Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Idera Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Idera Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Idera Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 251693.17073171). Idera Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 2.05. In other words for every 100,000 Idera Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2050 shares are currently held short.

However Idera Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Idera Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Idera Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Idera Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Idera Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.019% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Idera Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 19 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 Idera Pharmaceuticals.

Have Idera Pharmaceuticals's shares ever split?

Idera Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 30 July 2018. So if you had owned 8 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 Idera Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Idera Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted Idera Pharmaceuticals's share price.

Idera Pharmaceuticals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Idera Pharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.813 up to $2.95. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IDRA.US volatility(beta: 2.08)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 Idera Pharmaceuticals's is 2.0844. This would suggest that Idera Pharmaceuticals's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
