Shorting China Pharma shares

There are currently 129,086 China Pharma shares held short by investors – that's known as China Pharma's "short interest". This figure is 28.7% up from 100,308 last month.

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

China Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

China Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Pharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Pharma shares traded daily (recently around 806787.5). China Pharma's SIR currently stands at 0.16. In other words for every 100,000 China Pharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 160 shares are currently held short.

However China Pharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of China Pharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable China Pharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case China Pharma's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 China Pharma shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0053% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable China Pharma shares, roughly 5 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 China Pharma.
