Shorting Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 24.4 million Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Rigel Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 18% up from 20.7 million last month.

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

Rigel Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Rigel Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Rigel Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 10.78. In other words for every 100,000 Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10780 shares are currently held short.

However Rigel Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rigel Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1674% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 167 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Rigel Pharmaceuticals.

We're not expecting Rigel Pharmaceuticals to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Rigel Pharmaceuticals's shares ever split?

Rigel Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 1:9 basis on 25 June 2003. So if you had owned 9 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 Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 800% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rigel Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted Rigel Pharmaceuticals's share price.

Rigel Pharmaceuticals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Rigel Pharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.23 up to $3.89. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RIGL.US volatility(beta: 1.41)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 Rigel Pharmaceuticals's is 1.4064. This would suggest that Rigel Pharmaceuticals's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
