Shorting Intercept Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 5.1 million Intercept Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Intercept Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 11.4% down from 5.7 million last month.

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

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

Intercept Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Intercept Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Intercept Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 564848.54910714). Intercept Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 8.96. In other words for every 100,000 Intercept Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8960 shares are currently held short.

However Intercept Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Intercept Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Intercept Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Intercept Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Intercept Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.1755% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Intercept Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 176 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 Intercept Pharmaceuticals.

Intercept Pharmaceuticals share price volatility

ICPT.US volatility(beta: 1.55)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 Intercept Pharmaceuticals's is 1.5511. This would suggest that Intercept Pharmaceuticals's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
