Shorting Calyxt shares

There are currently 491,932 Calyxt shares held short by investors – that's known as Calyxt's "short interest". This figure is 5% down from 517,925 last month.

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

Calyxt's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Calyxt's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Calyxt shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Calyxt shares traded daily (recently around 82816.835016835). Calyxt's SIR currently stands at 5.94. In other words for every 100,000 Calyxt shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5940 shares are currently held short.

However Calyxt's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Calyxt shares, or, against the total number of tradable Calyxt shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Calyxt's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Calyxt shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0753% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Calyxt shares, roughly 75 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 Calyxt.
