Shorting Sorrento Therapeutics shares

There are currently 45.7 million Sorrento Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Sorrento Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 6% up from 43.1 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 4.3 million). Sorrento Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 10.51. In other words for every 100,000 Sorrento Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10510 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 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sorrento Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.1705% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sorrento Therapeutics shares, roughly 171 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 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 31 July 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 US$6 up to US$17.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SRNE.US volatility(beta: 2.4)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 Sorrento Therapeutics's is 2.4032. This would suggest that Sorrento Therapeutics's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
