Shorting Denali Therapeutics shares

There are currently 9.1 million Denali Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Denali Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% down from 9.2 million last month.

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

Denali Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Denali Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Denali Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Denali Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 589505.36175711). Denali Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 15.48. In other words for every 100,000 Denali Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15480 shares are currently held short.

However Denali Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Denali Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Denali Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Denali Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Denali Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1245% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Denali Therapeutics shares, roughly 125 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 Denali Therapeutics.

DNLI.US volatility(beta: 1.81)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 Denali Therapeutics's is 1.8137. This would suggest that Denali Therapeutics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
