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 SIR currently stands at 0.24. In other words for every 100,000 Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 240 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% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0021% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Galmed Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 2 shares are currently held short).
