Shorting Avid Bioservices shares

There are currently 4.9 million Avid Bioservices shares held short by investors – that's known as Avid Bioservices's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% up from 4.8 million last month.

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

Avid Bioservices's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Avid Bioservices's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avid Bioservices shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avid Bioservices shares traded daily (recently around 808537.85123967). Avid Bioservices's SIR currently stands at 6.05. In other words for every 100,000 Avid Bioservices shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6050 shares are currently held short.

However Avid Bioservices's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avid Bioservices shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avid Bioservices shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avid Bioservices's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avid Bioservices shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0874% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avid Bioservices shares, roughly 87 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 Avid Bioservices.

However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Avid Bioservices shares which in turn could have impacted Avid Bioservices's share price.
