Shorting Aligos Therapeutics shares

There are currently 1.4 million Aligos Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Aligos Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 4.2% up from 1.3 million last month.

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

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

Aligos Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aligos Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aligos Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 73683.855291577). Aligos Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 18.52. In other words for every 100,000 Aligos Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 18520 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Aligos Therapeutics's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Aligos Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aligos Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aligos Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aligos Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aligos Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0391% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aligos Therapeutics shares, roughly 39 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Aligos Therapeutics.
