Shorting Geron Corporation shares

There are currently 18.2 million Geron Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Geron Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 11.1% down from 20.4 million last month.

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

Geron Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Geron Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Geron Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Geron Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Geron Corporation's SIR currently stands at 10.36. In other words for every 100,000 Geron Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10360 shares are currently held short.

However Geron Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Geron Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Geron Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Geron Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Geron Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0626% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Geron Corporation shares, roughly 63 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 Geron Corporation.

Geron Corporation share dividends

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

Have Geron Corporation's shares ever split?

Geron Corporation's shares were split on a 1058:1000 basis on 21 July 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1058 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Geron Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Geron Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Geron Corporation's share price.

Geron Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Geron Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.2 up to $2.355. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GERN.US volatility(beta: 1.1)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 Geron Corporation's is 1.1005. This would suggest that Geron Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
