Shorting ACADIA Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 7.1 million ACADIA Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as ACADIA Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% up from 7.0 million last month.

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

ACADIA Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ACADIA Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ACADIA Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ACADIA Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). ACADIA Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 5.42. In other words for every 100,000 ACADIA Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5420 shares are currently held short.

However ACADIA Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ACADIA Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable ACADIA Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ACADIA Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ACADIA Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0603% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ACADIA Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 60 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against ACADIA Pharmaceuticals.
