Shorting Molecular Templates shares

There are currently 1.2 million Molecular Templates shares held short by investors – that's known as Molecular Templates's "short interest". This figure is 11.4% up from 1.1 million last month.

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

Molecular Templates's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Molecular Templates's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Molecular Templates shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Molecular Templates shares traded daily (recently around 279835.44018059). Molecular Templates's SIR currently stands at 4.43. In other words for every 100,000 Molecular Templates shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4430 shares are currently held short.

However Molecular Templates's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Molecular Templates shares, or, against the total number of tradable Molecular Templates shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Molecular Templates's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Molecular Templates shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0448% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Molecular Templates shares, roughly 45 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 Molecular Templates.

Have Molecular Templates's shares ever split?

Molecular Templates's shares were split on a 1:11 basis on 1 August 2017. So if you had owned 11 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 Molecular Templates shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1000% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Molecular Templates shares which in turn could have impacted Molecular Templates's share price.

Molecular Templates share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Molecular Templates's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.51 up to $18.44. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MTEM.US volatility(beta: 1.36)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 Molecular Templates's is 1.3605. This would suggest that Molecular Templates's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
