Shorting Adverum Biotechnologies shares

There are currently 12.4 million Adverum Biotechnologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Adverum Biotechnologies's "short interest". This figure is 17.7% up from 10.5 million last month.

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

Adverum Biotechnologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Adverum Biotechnologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Adverum Biotechnologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Adverum Biotechnologies shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Adverum Biotechnologies's SIR currently stands at 9.09. In other words for every 100,000 Adverum Biotechnologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9090 shares are currently held short.

However Adverum Biotechnologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Adverum Biotechnologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Adverum Biotechnologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Adverum Biotechnologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Adverum Biotechnologies shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1383% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Adverum Biotechnologies shares, roughly 138 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 Adverum Biotechnologies.
