Shorting Advaxis shares

There are currently 1.4 million Advaxis shares held short by investors – that's known as Advaxis's "short interest". This figure is 9.1% down from 1.6 million last month.

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

Advaxis's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Advaxis's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Advaxis shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Advaxis shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Advaxis's SIR currently stands at 0.82. In other words for every 100,000 Advaxis shares traded daily on the market, roughly 820 shares are currently held short.

However Advaxis's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Advaxis shares, or, against the total number of tradable Advaxis shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Advaxis's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Advaxis shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0214% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Advaxis shares, roughly 21 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 Advaxis.

Advaxis share dividends

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

Have Advaxis's shares ever split?

Advaxis's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 29 March 2019. So if you had owned 15 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 Advaxis shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Advaxis shares which in turn could have impacted Advaxis's share price.

Advaxis share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Advaxis's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.2625 up to $1.48. 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 Advaxis's is 3.4021. This would suggest that Advaxis's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
