Shorting Achieve Life Sciences shares

There are currently 501,949 Achieve Life Sciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Achieve Life Sciences's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 496,382 last month.

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

Achieve Life Sciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Achieve Life Sciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Achieve Life Sciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Achieve Life Sciences shares traded daily (recently around 115125.91743119). Achieve Life Sciences's SIR currently stands at 4.36. In other words for every 100,000 Achieve Life Sciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4360 shares are currently held short.

However Achieve Life Sciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Achieve Life Sciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Achieve Life Sciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Achieve Life Sciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Achieve Life Sciences shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0532% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Achieve Life Sciences shares, roughly 53 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 Achieve Life Sciences.

Have Achieve Life Sciences's shares ever split?

Achieve Life Sciences's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 30 July 2020. So if you had owned 20 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 Achieve Life Sciences shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Achieve Life Sciences shares which in turn could have impacted Achieve Life Sciences's share price.
