Shorting Sorrento Therapeutics shares

There are currently 75.7 million Sorrento Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Sorrento Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% up from 75.1 million last month.

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

Sorrento Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sorrento Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sorrento Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sorrento Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 32.4 million). Sorrento Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 2.34. In other words for every 100,000 Sorrento Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2340 shares are currently held short.

However Sorrento Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sorrento Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sorrento Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sorrento Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.29% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sorrento Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 290 shares are currently held short) or 0.2947% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sorrento Therapeutics shares, roughly 295 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Sorrento Therapeutics.

We're not expecting Sorrento Therapeutics to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Sorrento Therapeutics's shares ever split?

Sorrento Therapeutics's shares were split on a 1:25 basis on 1 August 2013. So if you had owned 25 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 Sorrento Therapeutics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sorrento Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Sorrento Therapeutics's share price.

Sorrento Therapeutics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sorrento Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.45 up to $15.04. 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 Sorrento Therapeutics's is 2.6089. This would suggest that Sorrento Therapeutics's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
