Shorting Iovance Biotherapeutics shares

There are currently 12.9 million Iovance Biotherapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Iovance Biotherapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 7% down from 13.9 million last month.

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

Iovance Biotherapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Iovance Biotherapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Iovance Biotherapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Iovance Biotherapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Iovance Biotherapeutics's SIR currently stands at 10.94. In other words for every 100,000 Iovance Biotherapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10940 shares are currently held short.

However Iovance Biotherapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Iovance Biotherapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Iovance Biotherapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Iovance Biotherapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Iovance Biotherapeutics shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0946% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Iovance Biotherapeutics shares, roughly 95 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 Iovance Biotherapeutics.

Have Iovance Biotherapeutics's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 9900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Iovance Biotherapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Iovance Biotherapeutics's share price.
