Shorting Lipocine shares

There are currently 4.0 million Lipocine shares held short by investors – that's known as Lipocine's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% down from 4.0 million last month.

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

Lipocine's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lipocine's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lipocine shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lipocine shares traded daily (recently around 918123.90804598). Lipocine's SIR currently stands at 4.35. In other words for every 100,000 Lipocine shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4350 shares are currently held short.

However Lipocine's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lipocine shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lipocine shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lipocine's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lipocine shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0623% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lipocine shares, roughly 62 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 Lipocine.

We're not expecting Lipocine to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Lipocine's shares ever split?

Lipocine's shares were split on a 1:100 basis on 25 July 2013. So if you had owned 100 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 Lipocine shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lipocine shares which in turn could have impacted Lipocine's share price.

Lipocine share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lipocine's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.301 up to $2.39. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LPCN.US volatility(beta: 0.8)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 Lipocine's is 0.8016. This would suggest that Lipocine's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
