Shorting Galapagos shares

There are currently 433,037 Galapagos shares held short by investors – that's known as Galapagos's "short interest". This figure is 17.7% up from 367,785 last month.

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

Galapagos's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Galapagos's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Galapagos shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Galapagos shares traded daily (recently around 254727.64705882). Galapagos's SIR currently stands at 1.7. In other words for every 100,000 Galapagos shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1700 shares are currently held short.

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