Shorting Altimmune shares

There are currently 5.3 million Altimmune shares held short by investors – that's known as Altimmune's "short interest". This figure is 13.5% up from 4.6 million last month.

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

Altimmune's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Altimmune's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Altimmune shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Altimmune shares traded daily (recently around 3.8 million). Altimmune's SIR currently stands at 1.4. In other words for every 100,000 Altimmune shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1400 shares are currently held short.

However Altimmune's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Altimmune shares, or, against the total number of tradable Altimmune shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Altimmune's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Altimmune shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1777% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Altimmune shares, roughly 178 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 Altimmune.

Altimmune share dividends

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

Have Altimmune's shares ever split?

Altimmune's shares were split on a 1:30 basis on 13 September 2018. So if you had owned 30 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 Altimmune shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Altimmune shares which in turn could have impacted Altimmune's share price.

Altimmune share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Altimmune's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.8 up to $29.71. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALT.US volatility(beta: 1.29)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 Altimmune's is 1.2938. This would suggest that Altimmune's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
