Shorting Axcella Health shares

There are currently 259,416 Axcella Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Axcella Health's "short interest". This figure is 12.1% down from 294,996 last month.

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

Axcella Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Axcella Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Axcella Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Axcella Health shares traded daily (recently around 50865.882352941). Axcella Health's SIR currently stands at 5.1. In other words for every 100,000 Axcella Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5100 shares are currently held short.

However Axcella Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Axcella Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Axcella Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Axcella Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Axcella Health shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0167% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Axcella Health shares, roughly 17 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 Axcella Health.
