Shorting Anavex Life Sciences shares

There are currently 7.6 million Anavex Life Sciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Anavex Life Sciences's "short interest". This figure is 13.3% down from 8.8 million last month.

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

Anavex Life Sciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Anavex Life Sciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Anavex Life Sciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Anavex Life Sciences shares traded daily (recently around 4.6 million). Anavex Life Sciences's SIR currently stands at 1.66. In other words for every 100,000 Anavex Life Sciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1660 shares are currently held short.

However Anavex Life Sciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Anavex Life Sciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Anavex Life Sciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Anavex Life Sciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Anavex Life Sciences shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1122% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Anavex Life Sciences shares, roughly 112 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 Anavex Life Sciences.
