Shorting IMV shares

There are currently 1.0 million IMV shares held short by investors – that's known as IMV's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% up from 1.0 million last month.

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

IMV's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

IMV's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IMV shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IMV shares traded daily (recently around 317089.6969697). IMV's SIR currently stands at 3.3. In other words for every 100,000 IMV shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3300 shares are currently held short.

However IMV's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IMV shares, or, against the total number of tradable IMV shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IMV's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IMV shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IMV shares, roughly 0 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 IMV.

IMV share dividends

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

Have IMV's shares ever split?

IMV's shares were split on a 312:1000 basis on 10 May 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 312 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your IMV shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 220.5% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for IMV shares which in turn could have impacted IMV's share price.

IMV share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, IMV's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.35 up to $6.82. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IMV.US volatility(beta: 2.06)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 IMV's is 2.0634. This would suggest that IMV's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
