Shorting Cerus Corporation shares
There are currently 13.1 million Cerus Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Cerus Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 16.9% down from 15.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cerus Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Cerus Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Cerus Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cerus Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cerus Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Cerus Corporation's SIR currently stands at 8.26. In other words for every 100,000 Cerus Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8260 shares are currently held short.
However Cerus Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cerus Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cerus Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cerus Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cerus Corporation shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.086% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cerus Corporation shares, roughly 86 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 Cerus Corporation.
