Shorting Galectin Therapeutics shares

There are currently 2.4 million Galectin Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Galectin Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 14.1% down from 2.7 million last month.

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

Galectin Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Galectin Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Galectin Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Galectin Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 362939.29121726). Galectin Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 6.49. In other words for every 100,000 Galectin Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6490 shares are currently held short.

However Galectin Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Galectin Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Galectin Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Galectin Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Galectin Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0541% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Galectin Therapeutics shares, roughly 54 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 Galectin Therapeutics.

However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Galectin Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Galectin Therapeutics's share price.
