Shorting CEL-SCI Corporation shares

There are currently 10.2 million CEL-SCI Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as CEL-SCI Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% down from 10.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CEL-SCI Corporation shares can be evaluated.

CEL-SCI Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CEL-SCI Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CEL-SCI Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CEL-SCI Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 558832.05689278). CEL-SCI Corporation's SIR currently stands at 18.28. In other words for every 100,000 CEL-SCI Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 18280 shares are currently held short.

However CEL-SCI Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CEL-SCI Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable CEL-SCI Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CEL-SCI Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.26% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CEL-SCI Corporation shares in existence, roughly 260 shares are currently held short) or 0.2681% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CEL-SCI Corporation shares, roughly 268 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against CEL-SCI Corporation.
