Shorting Evelo Biosciences shares

There are currently 1.7 million Evelo Biosciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Evelo Biosciences's "short interest". This figure is 19.8% up from 1.4 million last month.

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

Evelo Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Evelo Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Evelo Biosciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Evelo Biosciences shares traded daily (recently around 139740.20950846). Evelo Biosciences's SIR currently stands at 12.41. In other words for every 100,000 Evelo Biosciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12410 shares are currently held short.

However Evelo Biosciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Evelo Biosciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Evelo Biosciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Evelo Biosciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Evelo Biosciences shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.071% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Evelo Biosciences shares, roughly 71 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 Evelo Biosciences.
