Shorting Aileron Therapeutics shares

There are currently 1.2 million Aileron Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Aileron Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% down from 1.3 million last month.

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

Aileron Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aileron Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aileron Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aileron Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 738291.875). Aileron Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 1.6. In other words for every 100,000 Aileron Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1600 shares are currently held short.

However Aileron Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aileron Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aileron Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aileron Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aileron Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0345% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aileron Therapeutics shares, roughly 35 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 Aileron Therapeutics.
