Shorting Acceleron Pharma shares

There are currently 2.4 million Acceleron Pharma shares held short by investors – that's known as Acceleron Pharma's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% up from 2.2 million last month.

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

Acceleron Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Acceleron Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Acceleron Pharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Acceleron Pharma shares traded daily (recently around 375027.95698925). Acceleron Pharma's SIR currently stands at 6.51. In other words for every 100,000 Acceleron Pharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6510 shares are currently held short.

However Acceleron Pharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Acceleron Pharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable Acceleron Pharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Acceleron Pharma's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Acceleron Pharma shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0536% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Acceleron Pharma shares, roughly 54 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 Acceleron Pharma.
