Shorting Arbutus Biopharma Corporation shares

There are currently 4.2 million Arbutus Biopharma Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Arbutus Biopharma Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% up from 4.1 million last month.

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

Arbutus Biopharma Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Arbutus Biopharma Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arbutus Biopharma Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arbutus Biopharma Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Arbutus Biopharma Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.22. In other words for every 100,000 Arbutus Biopharma Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3220 shares are currently held short.

However Arbutus Biopharma Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arbutus Biopharma Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arbutus Biopharma Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arbutus Biopharma Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arbutus Biopharma Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0546% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arbutus Biopharma Corporation shares, roughly 55 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 Arbutus Biopharma Corporation.
