Shorting Lixte Biotechnology shares

There are currently 48,359 Lixte Biotechnology shares held short by investors – that's known as Lixte Biotechnology's "short interest". This figure is 25.4% up from 38,559 last month.

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

Lixte Biotechnology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lixte Biotechnology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lixte Biotechnology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lixte Biotechnology shares traded daily (recently around 77998.387096774). Lixte Biotechnology's SIR currently stands at 0.62. In other words for every 100,000 Lixte Biotechnology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 620 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Lixte Biotechnology's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Lixte Biotechnology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lixte Biotechnology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lixte Biotechnology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lixte Biotechnology's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lixte Biotechnology shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0097% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lixte Biotechnology shares, roughly 10 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 Lixte Biotechnology.

Have Lixte Biotechnology's shares ever split?

Lixte Biotechnology's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 19 November 2020. So if you had owned 6 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 Lixte Biotechnology shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lixte Biotechnology shares which in turn could have impacted Lixte Biotechnology's share price.

Lixte Biotechnology share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lixte Biotechnology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.75 up to $6.96. 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 Lixte Biotechnology's is -1.2254. This would suggest that Lixte Biotechnology's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Lixte Biotechnology has bucked the trend.

To put Lixte Biotechnology's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
