Shorting Midatech Pharma shares

There are currently 108,824 Midatech Pharma shares held short by investors – that's known as Midatech Pharma's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% up from 107,480 last month.

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

Midatech Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Midatech Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Midatech Pharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Midatech Pharma shares traded daily (recently around 640141.17647059). Midatech Pharma's SIR currently stands at 0.17. In other words for every 100,000 Midatech Pharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 170 shares are currently held short.

However Midatech Pharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Midatech Pharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable Midatech Pharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Midatech Pharma's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Midatech Pharma shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Midatech Pharma shares, roughly 0 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 Midatech Pharma.

Have Midatech Pharma's shares ever split?

Midatech Pharma's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 3 March 2020. So if you had owned 5 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 Midatech Pharma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Midatech Pharma shares which in turn could have impacted Midatech Pharma's share price.

Midatech Pharma share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Midatech Pharma's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.862 up to $4.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MTP.US volatility(beta: 1.7)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 Midatech Pharma's is 1.6957. This would suggest that Midatech Pharma's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
