Shorting Berkeley Lights shares

There are currently 7.0 million Berkeley Lights shares held short by investors – that's known as Berkeley Lights's "short interest". This figure is 39.1% up from 5.0 million last month.

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

Berkeley Lights's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Berkeley Lights's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Berkeley Lights shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Berkeley Lights shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). Berkeley Lights's SIR currently stands at 2.67. In other words for every 100,000 Berkeley Lights shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2670 shares are currently held short.

However Berkeley Lights's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Berkeley Lights shares, or, against the total number of tradable Berkeley Lights shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Berkeley Lights's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Berkeley Lights shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1261% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Berkeley Lights shares, roughly 126 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 Berkeley Lights.
