Shorting Aerpio Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 1.8 million Aerpio Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Aerpio Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 6.2% up from 1.7 million last month.

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

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

Aerpio Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aerpio Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aerpio Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 8.4 million). Aerpio Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 0.21. In other words for every 100,000 Aerpio Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 210 shares are currently held short.

However Aerpio Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aerpio Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aerpio Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aerpio Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aerpio Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0175% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aerpio Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 18 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 Aerpio Pharmaceuticals.
