Shorting Fortress Biotech shares

There are currently 927,253 Fortress Biotech shares held short by investors – that's known as Fortress Biotech's "short interest". This figure is 17.3% up from 790,697 last month.

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

Fortress Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fortress Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fortress Biotech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fortress Biotech shares traded daily (recently around 311158.72483221). Fortress Biotech's SIR currently stands at 2.98. In other words for every 100,000 Fortress Biotech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2980 shares are currently held short.

However Fortress Biotech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fortress Biotech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fortress Biotech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fortress Biotech's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fortress Biotech shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0147% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fortress Biotech shares, roughly 15 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Fortress Biotech.
