Shorting Aerie Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 7.1 million Aerie Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Aerie Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% down from 7.3 million last month.

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

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

Aerie Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aerie Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aerie Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 714065.99190283). Aerie Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 9.88. In other words for every 100,000 Aerie Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9880 shares are currently held short.

However Aerie Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aerie Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aerie Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aerie Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aerie Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.2067% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aerie Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 207 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 Aerie Pharmaceuticals.
