Shorting Pulse Biosciences shares

There are currently 2.3 million Pulse Biosciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Pulse Biosciences's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 2.3 million last month.

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

Pulse Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Pulse Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pulse Biosciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pulse Biosciences shares traded daily (recently around 113336.45631068). Pulse Biosciences's SIR currently stands at 20.6. In other words for every 100,000 Pulse Biosciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 20600 shares are currently held short.

However Pulse Biosciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pulse Biosciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pulse Biosciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pulse Biosciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pulse Biosciences shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1489% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pulse Biosciences shares, roughly 149 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Pulse Biosciences.

Pulse Biosciences share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Pulse Biosciences's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.11 up to $16.245. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PLSE.US volatility(beta: 1.75)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 Pulse Biosciences's is 1.7518. This would suggest that Pulse Biosciences's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
