Shorting DURECT Corporation shares

There are currently 7.8 million DURECT Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as DURECT Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 7.6 million last month.

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

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

DURECT Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DURECT Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DURECT Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 468049.93961353). DURECT Corporation's SIR currently stands at 16.56. In other words for every 100,000 DURECT Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 16560 shares are currently held short.

However DURECT Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DURECT Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable DURECT Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DURECT Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DURECT Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0425% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DURECT Corporation shares, roughly 43 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 DURECT Corporation.
