Shorting Allakos shares

There are currently 3.8 million Allakos shares held short by investors – that's known as Allakos's "short interest". This figure is 13.3% up from 3.4 million last month.

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

Allakos's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Allakos's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Allakos shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Allakos shares traded daily (recently around 331412.96456353). Allakos's SIR currently stands at 11.57. In other words for every 100,000 Allakos shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11570 shares are currently held short.

However Allakos's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allakos shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allakos shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allakos's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allakos shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1043% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allakos shares, roughly 104 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 Allakos.
