Shorting Cytokinetics Incorporated shares

There are currently 10.5 million Cytokinetics Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as Cytokinetics Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 1.8% down from 10.7 million last month.

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

Cytokinetics Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cytokinetics Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cytokinetics Incorporated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cytokinetics Incorporated shares traded daily (recently around 945088.65886589). Cytokinetics Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 11.11. In other words for every 100,000 Cytokinetics Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11110 shares are currently held short.

However Cytokinetics Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cytokinetics Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cytokinetics Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cytokinetics Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cytokinetics Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1265% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cytokinetics Incorporated shares, roughly 127 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 Cytokinetics Incorporated.

Cytokinetics Incorporated share dividends

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

Have Cytokinetics Incorporated's shares ever split?

Cytokinetics Incorporated's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 24 June 2013. 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 Cytokinetics Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cytokinetics Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Cytokinetics Incorporated's share price.

Cytokinetics Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cytokinetics Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.8901 up to $39.46. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CYTK.US volatility(beta: 1.31)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 Cytokinetics Incorporated's is 1.3101. This would suggest that Cytokinetics Incorporated's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
