Shorting Cortexyme shares

There are currently 3.2 million Cortexyme shares held short by investors – that's known as Cortexyme's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% down from 3.3 million last month.

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

Cortexyme's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cortexyme's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cortexyme shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cortexyme shares traded daily (recently around 395937.46928747). Cortexyme's SIR currently stands at 8.14. In other words for every 100,000 Cortexyme shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8140 shares are currently held short.

However Cortexyme's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cortexyme shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cortexyme shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cortexyme's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cortexyme shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.2078% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cortexyme shares, roughly 208 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 Cortexyme.
