Shorting Athira Pharma shares

There are currently 807,897 Athira Pharma shares held short by investors – that's known as Athira Pharma's "short interest". This figure is 13.8% down from 937,207 last month.

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

Athira Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Athira Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Athira Pharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Athira Pharma shares traded daily (recently around 453874.71910112). Athira Pharma's SIR currently stands at 1.78. In other words for every 100,000 Athira Pharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1780 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Athira Pharma's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Athira Pharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Athira Pharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable Athira Pharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Athira Pharma's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Athira Pharma shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0247% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Athira Pharma shares, roughly 25 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 Athira Pharma.
