Shorting Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 2.5 million Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Pieris Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 8.1% up from 2.4 million last month.

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

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

Pieris Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 520119.42740286). Pieris Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 4.89. In other words for every 100,000 Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4890 shares are currently held short.

However Pieris Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pieris Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0465% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 47 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 Pieris Pharmaceuticals.

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

Have Pieris Pharmaceuticals's shares ever split?

Pieris Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 December 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pieris Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted Pieris Pharmaceuticals's share price.

Pieris Pharmaceuticals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Pieris Pharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.95 up to $3.639. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PIRS.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 Pieris Pharmaceuticals's is 1.2725. This would suggest that Pieris 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).
