Shorting Alimera Sciences shares

There are currently 185,064 Alimera Sciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Alimera Sciences's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% down from 187,193 last month.

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

Alimera Sciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Alimera Sciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alimera Sciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alimera Sciences shares traded daily (recently around 15512.489522213). Alimera Sciences's SIR currently stands at 11.93. In other words for every 100,000 Alimera Sciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11930 shares are currently held short.

However Alimera Sciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Alimera Sciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Alimera Sciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Alimera Sciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Alimera Sciences shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0421% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Alimera Sciences shares, roughly 42 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 Alimera Sciences.

However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alimera Sciences shares which in turn could have impacted Alimera Sciences's share price.

This would suggest that Alimera Sciences's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
