How to short and sell Sunesis shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "SNSS.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 1.2 million Sunesis shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 24% down from 1.6 million last month.

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

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Sunesis's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sunesis shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sunesis shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Sunesis's SIR currently stands at 0.99. In other words for every 100,000 Sunesis shares traded daily on the market, roughly 990 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Sunesis's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Sunesis's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sunesis shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sunesis shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sunesis's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sunesis shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0183% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sunesis shares, roughly 18 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 Sunesis.

You may also wish to consider:

Have Sunesis's shares ever split?

Sunesis's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 2 September 2020. 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 Sunesis shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sunesis shares which in turn could have impacted Sunesis's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sunesis's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.92 up to $22.988. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SNSS.US volatility(beta: 2.23)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 Sunesis's is 2.2284. This would suggest that Sunesis's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.

To put Sunesis's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
