Shorting Akebia Therapeutics shares

There are currently 12.7 million Akebia Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Akebia Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% up from 12.5 million last month.

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

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

Akebia Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Akebia Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Akebia Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Akebia Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 6.42. In other words for every 100,000 Akebia Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6420 shares are currently held short.

However Akebia Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Akebia Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Akebia Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Akebia Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Akebia Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0734% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Akebia Therapeutics shares, roughly 73 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 Akebia Therapeutics.
