Shorting Nephros shares

There are currently 31,329 Nephros shares held short by investors – that's known as Nephros's "short interest". This figure is 82.2% up from 17,191 last month.

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

Nephros's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Nephros's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nephros shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nephros shares traded daily (recently around 11777.819548872). Nephros's SIR currently stands at 2.66. In other words for every 100,000 Nephros shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2660 shares are currently held short.

However Nephros's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nephros shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nephros shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nephros's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nephros shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0068% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nephros shares, roughly 7 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 Nephros.

Nephros share dividends

We're not expecting Nephros to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Nephros's shares ever split?

Nephros's shares were split on a 1:9 basis on 9 July 2019. So if you had owned 9 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 Nephros shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 800% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nephros shares which in turn could have impacted Nephros's share price.

Nephros share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nephros's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.0813 up to $10.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NEPH.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 Nephros's is 1.3613. This would suggest that Nephros's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
