Shorting TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 481,437 TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as TRACON Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 37.4% up from 350,477 last month.

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

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

TRACON Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 471997.05882353). TRACON Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 1.02. In other words for every 100,000 TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1020 shares are currently held short.

However TRACON Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TRACON Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0312% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 31 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 TRACON Pharmaceuticals.

Have TRACON Pharmaceuticals's shares ever split?

TRACON Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 7 November 2019. 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 TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for TRACON Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted TRACON Pharmaceuticals's share price.

TRACON Pharmaceuticals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TRACON Pharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.55 up to $12.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TCON.US volatility(beta: 1.99)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 TRACON Pharmaceuticals's is 1.9906. This would suggest that TRACON 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).
