Shorting Biodesix shares

There are currently 390,212 Biodesix shares held short by investors – that's known as Biodesix's "short interest". This figure is 2.9% down from 401,775 last month.

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

Biodesix's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Biodesix's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Biodesix shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Biodesix shares traded daily (recently around 103779.78723404). Biodesix's SIR currently stands at 3.76. In other words for every 100,000 Biodesix shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3760 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Biodesix's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Biodesix's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Biodesix shares, or, against the total number of tradable Biodesix shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Biodesix's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Biodesix shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0356% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Biodesix shares, roughly 36 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 Biodesix.
