Shorting Akouos shares

There are currently 2.3 million Akouos shares held short by investors – that's known as Akouos's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% up from 2.3 million last month.

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

Akouos's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Akouos's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Akouos shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Akouos shares traded daily (recently around 94644.484995945). Akouos's SIR currently stands at 24.66. In other words for every 100,000 Akouos shares traded daily on the market, roughly 24660 shares are currently held short.

However Akouos's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Akouos shares, or, against the total number of tradable Akouos shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Akouos's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Akouos shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.109% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Akouos shares, roughly 109 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Akouos.
