Shorting Checkpoint Therapeutics shares

There are currently 2.1 million Checkpoint Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Checkpoint Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 0.4% down from 2.1 million last month.

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

Checkpoint Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Checkpoint Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Checkpoint Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Checkpoint Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 470029.49002217). Checkpoint Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 4.51. In other words for every 100,000 Checkpoint Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4510 shares are currently held short.

However Checkpoint Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Checkpoint Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Checkpoint Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Checkpoint Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Checkpoint Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0405% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Checkpoint Therapeutics shares, roughly 41 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 Checkpoint Therapeutics.
