Shorting Vaccinex shares

There are currently 553,693 Vaccinex shares held short by investors – that's known as Vaccinex's "short interest". This figure is 31.3% down from 805,500 last month.

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

Vaccinex's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vaccinex's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vaccinex shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vaccinex shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Vaccinex's SIR currently stands at 0.52. In other words for every 100,000 Vaccinex shares traded daily on the market, roughly 520 shares are currently held short.

However Vaccinex's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vaccinex shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vaccinex shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vaccinex's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vaccinex shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0448% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vaccinex shares, roughly 45 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 Vaccinex.

Vaccinex share price volatility

VCNX.US volatility(beta: 1.81)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 Vaccinex's is 1.8054. This would suggest that Vaccinex's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
