Shorting ContraFect Corporation shares

There are currently 2.9 million ContraFect Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as ContraFect Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.6% down from 3.2 million last month.

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

ContraFect Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ContraFect Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ContraFect Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ContraFect Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 128425.39335664). ContraFect Corporation's SIR currently stands at 22.88. In other words for every 100,000 ContraFect Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 22880 shares are currently held short.

However ContraFect Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ContraFect Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable ContraFect Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ContraFect Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ContraFect Corporation shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0921% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ContraFect Corporation shares, roughly 92 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against ContraFect Corporation.

Have ContraFect Corporation's shares ever split?

ContraFect Corporation's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 3 February 2020. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ContraFect Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for ContraFect Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted ContraFect Corporation's share price.
