Shorting Albireo Pharma shares

There are currently 714,791 Albireo Pharma shares held short by investors – that's known as Albireo Pharma's "short interest". This figure is 5.2% up from 679,637 last month.

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

Albireo Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Albireo Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Albireo Pharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Albireo Pharma shares traded daily (recently around 173072.88135593). Albireo Pharma's SIR currently stands at 4.13. In other words for every 100,000 Albireo Pharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4130 shares are currently held short.

However Albireo Pharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Albireo Pharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable Albireo Pharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Albireo Pharma's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Albireo Pharma shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0437% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Albireo Pharma shares, roughly 44 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 Albireo Pharma.

Have Albireo Pharma's shares ever split?

Albireo Pharma's shares were split on a 1:30 basis on 4 November 2016. So if you had owned 30 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Albireo Pharma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Albireo Pharma shares which in turn could have impacted Albireo Pharma's share price.

Albireo Pharma share price volatility
