There are currently 23.1 million Agenus shares held short by investors – that's known as Agenus's "short interest". This figure is 0.4% up from 23.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Agenus shares can be evaluated.
Agenus's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Agenus shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Agenus shares traded daily (recently around 3.9 million). Agenus's SIR currently stands at 5.95. In other words for every 100,000 Agenus shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5950 shares are currently held short.
However Agenus's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Agenus shares, or, against the total number of tradable Agenus shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Agenus's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Agenus shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1412% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Agenus shares, roughly 141 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 Agenus.

We're not expecting Agenus to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Agenus's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 3 October 2011. So if you had owned 6 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 Agenus shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Agenus shares which in turn could have impacted Agenus's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Agenus's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.82 up to $5.63. 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 Agenus's is 1.9592. This would suggest that Agenus's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
