Shorting Arena Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 2.5 million Arena Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Arena Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% up from 2.3 million last month.

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

Arena Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Arena Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arena Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arena Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 499598.58585859). Arena Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 4.95. In other words for every 100,000 Arena Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4950 shares are currently held short.

However Arena Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arena Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arena Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arena Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arena Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0452% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arena Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 45 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 Arena Pharmaceuticals.
