There are currently 3.6 million Beam Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Beam Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 8.7% up from 3.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Beam Therapeutics shares can be evaluated.
Beam Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Beam Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Beam Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 520850.28653295). Beam Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 6.98. In other words for every 100,000 Beam Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6980 shares are currently held short.
However Beam Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Beam Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Beam Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Beam Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Beam Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.141% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Beam Therapeutics shares, roughly 141 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 Beam Therapeutics.
