Shorting Momenta Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 5.4 million Momenta Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Momenta Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 23% up from 4.4 million last month.

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

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

Momenta Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Momenta Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Momenta Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 6.9 million). Momenta Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 0.79. In other words for every 100,000 Momenta Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 790 shares are currently held short.

However Momenta Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Momenta Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Momenta Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Momenta Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Momenta Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0757% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Momenta Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 76 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 Momenta Pharmaceuticals.

MNTA.US volatility(beta: 1.79)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 Momenta Pharmaceuticals's is 1.7854. This would suggest that Momenta Pharmaceuticals's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
