Shorting Cidara Therapeutics shares

There are currently 2.1 million Cidara Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Cidara Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 0.1% up from 2.1 million last month.

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

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

Cidara Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cidara Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cidara Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 257068.51168512). Cidara Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 8.13. In other words for every 100,000 Cidara Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8130 shares are currently held short.

However Cidara Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cidara Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cidara Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cidara Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cidara Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0559% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cidara Therapeutics shares, roughly 56 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 Cidara Therapeutics.
