Shorting Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares

There are currently 24.4 million Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Dynavax Technologies Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.7% down from 26.7 million last month.

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

Dynavax Technologies Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dynavax Technologies Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). Dynavax Technologies Corporation's SIR currently stands at 8.11. In other words for every 100,000 Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8110 shares are currently held short.

However Dynavax Technologies Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dynavax Technologies Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.22% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares in existence, roughly 220 shares are currently held short) or 0.2961% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares, roughly 296 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 Dynavax Technologies Corporation.

Have Dynavax Technologies Corporation's shares ever split?

Dynavax Technologies Corporation's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 10 November 2014. So if you had owned 10 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 Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Dynavax Technologies Corporation's share price.
