Shorting Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 2.4 million Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Madrigal Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 4.5% down from 2.5 million last month.

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

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

Madrigal Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 120606.97201018). Madrigal Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 19.65. In other words for every 100,000 Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 19650 shares are currently held short.

However Madrigal Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Madrigal Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.2987% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 299 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 Madrigal Pharmaceuticals.

Have Madrigal Pharmaceuticals's shares ever split?

Madrigal Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 1:35 basis on 25 July 2016. So if you had owned 35 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 Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Madrigal Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted Madrigal Pharmaceuticals's share price.

Madrigal Pharmaceuticals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Madrigal Pharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $56.82 up to $136.81. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
