There are currently 4.4 million Seagen shares held short by investors – that's known as Seagen's "short interest". This figure is 7.8% up from 4.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Seagen shares can be evaluated.
Seagen's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Seagen shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Seagen shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Seagen's SIR currently stands at 3.61. In other words for every 100,000 Seagen shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3610 shares are currently held short.
However Seagen's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Seagen shares, or, against the total number of tradable Seagen shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Seagen's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Seagen shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0787% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Seagen shares, roughly 79 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 Seagen.

We're not expecting Seagen to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Seagen's shares have ranged in value from as little as $90.57 up to $213.94. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Seagen's is 1.1274. This would suggest that Seagen'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).
