Shorting bluebird bio shares

There are currently 6.6 million bluebird bio shares held short by investors – that's known as bluebird bio's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% down from 6.8 million last month.

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

bluebird bio's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

bluebird bio's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of bluebird bio shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of bluebird bio shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). bluebird bio's SIR currently stands at 3.77. In other words for every 100,000 bluebird bio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3770 shares are currently held short.

However bluebird bio's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of bluebird bio shares, or, against the total number of tradable bluebird bio shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case bluebird bio's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 bluebird bio shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.143% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable bluebird bio shares, roughly 143 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 bluebird bio.
