Shorting Kura Oncology shares

There are currently 8.1 million Kura Oncology shares held short by investors – that's known as Kura Oncology's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% down from 8.5 million last month.

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

Kura Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kura Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kura Oncology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kura Oncology shares traded daily (recently around 769025.21489971). Kura Oncology's SIR currently stands at 10.47. In other words for every 100,000 Kura Oncology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10470 shares are currently held short.

However Kura Oncology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kura Oncology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kura Oncology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kura Oncology's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kura Oncology shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1424% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kura Oncology shares, roughly 142 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Kura Oncology.

Kura Oncology share price volatility

KURA.US volatility(beta: 1.9)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 Kura Oncology's is 1.895. This would suggest that Kura Oncology's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
