Shorting Zogenix shares

There are currently 7.6 million Zogenix shares held short by investors – that's known as Zogenix's "short interest". This figure is 7.2% up from 7.1 million last month.

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

Zogenix's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zogenix's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zogenix shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zogenix shares traded daily (recently around 996864.29512516). Zogenix's SIR currently stands at 7.59. In other words for every 100,000 Zogenix shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7590 shares are currently held short.

However Zogenix's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zogenix shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zogenix shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zogenix's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zogenix shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1339% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zogenix shares, roughly 134 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 Zogenix.

Zogenix share dividends

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

Have Zogenix's shares ever split?

Zogenix's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 1 July 2015. So if you had owned 8 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 Zogenix shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Zogenix shares which in turn could have impacted Zogenix's share price.

Zogenix share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Zogenix's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.65 up to $57.22. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ZGNX.US volatility(beta: 1.74)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 Zogenix's is 1.7368. This would suggest that Zogenix's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
