Shorting Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 648,677 Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Galmed Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% down from 652,497 last month.

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

Galmed Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Galmed Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 148779.12844037). Galmed Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 4.36. In other words for every 100,000 Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4360 shares are currently held short.

However Galmed Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Galmed Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0356% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 36 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 Galmed Pharmaceuticals.
