Shorting Amicus Therapeutics shares

There are currently 29.8 million Amicus Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Amicus Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% down from 30.2 million last month.

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

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

Amicus Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Amicus Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Amicus Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Amicus Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 15.23. In other words for every 100,000 Amicus Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15230 shares are currently held short.

However Amicus Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Amicus Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Amicus Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Amicus Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Amicus Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.116% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Amicus Therapeutics shares, roughly 116 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 Amicus Therapeutics.

FOLD.US volatility(beta: 1.17)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
