Shorting BioXcel Therapeutics shares

There are currently 2.7 million BioXcel Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as BioXcel Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 16.9% up from 2.3 million last month.

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

BioXcel Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BioXcel Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BioXcel Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BioXcel Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 515802.49042146). BioXcel Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 5.22. In other words for every 100,000 BioXcel Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5220 shares are currently held short.

However BioXcel Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BioXcel Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable BioXcel Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BioXcel Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BioXcel Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.2127% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BioXcel Therapeutics shares, roughly 213 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 BioXcel Therapeutics.
