Shorting Avantor shares
There are currently 19.9 million Avantor shares held short by investors – that's known as Avantor's "short interest". This figure is 32% up from 15.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Avantor shares can be evaluated.
Avantor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Avantor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avantor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avantor shares traded daily (recently around 4.2 million). Avantor's SIR currently stands at 4.74. In other words for every 100,000 Avantor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4740 shares are currently held short.
However Avantor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avantor shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avantor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avantor's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avantor shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0344% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avantor shares, roughly 34 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 Avantor.
