Shorting Orchard Therapeutics shares

There are currently 4.8 million Orchard Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Orchard Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 10.2% down from 5.3 million last month.

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

Orchard Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Orchard Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Orchard Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Orchard Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Orchard Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 4.52. In other words for every 100,000 Orchard Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4520 shares are currently held short.

However Orchard Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Orchard Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Orchard Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Orchard Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Orchard Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Orchard Therapeutics 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 Orchard Therapeutics.

Orchard Therapeutics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Orchard Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.76 up to $12.377. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ORTX.US volatility(beta: 1.23)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 Orchard Therapeutics's is 1.2305. This would suggest that Orchard Therapeutics's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
