Shorting Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 5.1 million Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% down from 5.1 million last month.

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

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

Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 886270.1208981). Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 5.79. In other words for every 100,000 Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5790 shares are currently held short.

However Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0579% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 58 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals.
