Shorting Certara shares

There are currently 2.1 million Certara shares held short by investors – that's known as Certara's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% up from 2.0 million last month.

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

Certara's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Certara's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Certara shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Certara shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Certara's SIR currently stands at 1.56. In other words for every 100,000 Certara shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1560 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Certara's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Certara's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Certara shares, or, against the total number of tradable Certara shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Certara's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Certara shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0249% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Certara shares, roughly 25 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 Certara.
