Shorting Protalix BioTherapeutics shares

There are currently 7.3 million Protalix BioTherapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Protalix BioTherapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 49.5% up from 4.9 million last month.

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

Protalix BioTherapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Protalix BioTherapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Protalix BioTherapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Protalix BioTherapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Protalix BioTherapeutics's SIR currently stands at 6.25. In other words for every 100,000 Protalix BioTherapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6250 shares are currently held short.

However Protalix BioTherapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Protalix BioTherapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Protalix BioTherapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Protalix BioTherapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Protalix BioTherapeutics shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.222% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Protalix BioTherapeutics shares, roughly 222 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Protalix BioTherapeutics.

Have Protalix BioTherapeutics's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Protalix BioTherapeutics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Protalix BioTherapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Protalix BioTherapeutics's share price.

Protalix BioTherapeutics share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Protalix BioTherapeutics's is 2.6794. This would suggest that Protalix BioTherapeutics's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
