Shorting BioNTech shares

There are currently 5.1 million BioNTech shares held short by investors – that's known as BioNTech's "short interest". This figure is 33% up from 3.9 million last month.

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

BioNTech's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BioNTech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BioNTech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BioNTech shares traded daily (recently around 2.7 million). BioNTech's SIR currently stands at 1.87. In other words for every 100,000 BioNTech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1870 shares are currently held short.

However BioNTech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BioNTech shares, or, against the total number of tradable BioNTech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BioNTech's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BioNTech shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BioNTech shares, roughly 0 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 BioNTech.
