Shorting Purple Biotech shares

There are currently 1.1 million Purple Biotech shares held short by investors – that's known as Purple Biotech's "short interest". This figure is 8.4% down from 1.2 million last month.

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

Purple Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Purple Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Purple Biotech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Purple Biotech shares traded daily (recently around 113274.8496994). Purple Biotech's SIR currently stands at 9.98. In other words for every 100,000 Purple Biotech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9980 shares are currently held short.

However Purple Biotech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Purple Biotech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Purple Biotech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Purple Biotech's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Purple Biotech shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0695% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Purple Biotech shares, roughly 70 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 Purple Biotech.

Purple Biotech share dividends

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

Have Purple Biotech's shares ever split?

Purple Biotech's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 20 August 2020. So if you had owned 10 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 Purple Biotech shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Purple Biotech shares which in turn could have impacted Purple Biotech's share price.

Purple Biotech share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Purple Biotech's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.6 up to $7.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PPBT.US volatility(beta: 1.92)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 Purple Biotech's is 1.9207. This would suggest that Purple Biotech's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
