Shorting Collegium Pharmaceutical shares

There are currently 4.3 million Collegium Pharmaceutical shares held short by investors – that's known as Collegium Pharmaceutical's "short interest". This figure is 6.2% down from 4.5 million last month.

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

Collegium Pharmaceutical's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Collegium Pharmaceutical's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Collegium Pharmaceutical shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Collegium Pharmaceutical shares traded daily (recently around 480729.60451977). Collegium Pharmaceutical's SIR currently stands at 8.85. In other words for every 100,000 Collegium Pharmaceutical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8850 shares are currently held short.

However Collegium Pharmaceutical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Collegium Pharmaceutical shares, or, against the total number of tradable Collegium Pharmaceutical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Collegium Pharmaceutical's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Collegium Pharmaceutical shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1424% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Collegium Pharmaceutical shares, roughly 142 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 Collegium Pharmaceutical.
