Shorting Applied Therapeutics shares

There are currently 1.6 million Applied Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Applied Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 6.1% up from 1.5 million last month.

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

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

Applied Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Applied Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Applied Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 145773.86046512). Applied Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 10.75. In other words for every 100,000 Applied Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10750 shares are currently held short.

However Applied Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Applied Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Applied Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Applied Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Applied Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1141% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Applied Therapeutics shares, roughly 114 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 Applied Therapeutics.
