Shorting Halozyme Therapeutics shares

There are currently 15.5 million Halozyme Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Halozyme Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 7% down from 16.6 million last month.

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

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

Halozyme Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Halozyme Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Halozyme Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Halozyme Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 11.46. In other words for every 100,000 Halozyme Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11460 shares are currently held short.

However Halozyme Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Halozyme Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Halozyme Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Halozyme Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Halozyme Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1287% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Halozyme Therapeutics shares, roughly 129 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Halozyme Therapeutics.
