Shorting Homology Medicines shares

There are currently 4.4 million Homology Medicines shares held short by investors – that's known as Homology Medicines's "short interest". This figure is 19.7% down from 5.5 million last month.

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

Homology Medicines's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Homology Medicines's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Homology Medicines shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Homology Medicines shares traded daily (recently around 462294.46764092). Homology Medicines's SIR currently stands at 9.58. In other words for every 100,000 Homology Medicines shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9580 shares are currently held short.

However Homology Medicines's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Homology Medicines shares, or, against the total number of tradable Homology Medicines shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Homology Medicines's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Homology Medicines shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1315% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Homology Medicines shares, roughly 132 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 Homology Medicines.
