Shorting IGM Biosciences shares

There are currently 1.6 million IGM Biosciences shares held short by investors – that's known as IGM Biosciences's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% up from 1.6 million last month.

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

IGM Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

IGM Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IGM Biosciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IGM Biosciences shares traded daily (recently around 224939.16786227). IGM Biosciences's SIR currently stands at 6.97. In other words for every 100,000 IGM Biosciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6970 shares are currently held short.

However IGM Biosciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IGM Biosciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable IGM Biosciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IGM Biosciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IGM Biosciences shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.2205% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IGM Biosciences shares, roughly 221 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 IGM Biosciences.
