Shorting Exact Sciences Corporation shares

There are currently 10.6 million Exact Sciences Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Exact Sciences Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% down from 10.8 million last month.

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

Exact Sciences Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Exact Sciences Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Exact Sciences Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Exact Sciences Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Exact Sciences Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.05. In other words for every 100,000 Exact Sciences Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6050 shares are currently held short.

However Exact Sciences Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Exact Sciences Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Exact Sciences Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Exact Sciences Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Exact Sciences Corporation shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0813% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Exact Sciences Corporation shares, roughly 81 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 Exact Sciences Corporation.
