Shorting Rafael shares

There are currently 172,940 Rafael shares held short by investors – that's known as Rafael's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% down from 179,178 last month.

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

Rafael's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Rafael's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rafael shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rafael shares traded daily (recently around 28258.169934641). Rafael's SIR currently stands at 6.12. In other words for every 100,000 Rafael shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6120 shares are currently held short.

However Rafael's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rafael shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rafael shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rafael's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rafael shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0121% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rafael shares, roughly 12 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 Rafael.

RFL.US volatility(beta: 2.39)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Rafael's is 2.3877. This would suggest that Rafael's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
