Abcam's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Abcam's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Abcam shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Abcam shares traded daily (recently around 52291.902834008). Abcam's SIR currently stands at 2.47. In other words for every 100,000 Abcam shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2470 shares are currently held short.

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

However Abcam's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Abcam shares, or, against the total number of tradable Abcam shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Abcam's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Abcam shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0007% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Abcam shares, roughly 1 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 Abcam.
