Shorting Deciphera Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 4.2 million Deciphera Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Deciphera Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 10.6% up from 3.8 million last month.

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

Deciphera Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Deciphera Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Deciphera Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Deciphera Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 411862.20472441). Deciphera Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 10.16. In other words for every 100,000 Deciphera Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10160 shares are currently held short.

However Deciphera Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Deciphera Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Deciphera Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Deciphera Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Deciphera Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1055% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Deciphera Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 106 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Deciphera Pharmaceuticals.
