Shorting Quotient shares

There are currently 4.9 million Quotient shares held short by investors – that's known as Quotient's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% down from 5.0 million last month.

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

Quotient's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Quotient's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Quotient shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Quotient shares traded daily (recently around 830242.80879865). Quotient's SIR currently stands at 5.91. In other words for every 100,000 Quotient shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5910 shares are currently held short.

However Quotient's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Quotient shares, or, against the total number of tradable Quotient shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Quotient's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Quotient shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0571% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Quotient shares, roughly 57 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 Quotient.

Quotient share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Quotient's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.395 up to $9.65. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Quotient's is 2.6142. This would suggest that Quotient's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
