There are currently 19.5 million Ironwood Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Ironwood Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 5% down from 20.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ironwood Pharmaceuticals shares can be evaluated.
Ironwood Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ironwood Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ironwood Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million). Ironwood Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 6.82. In other words for every 100,000 Ironwood Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6820 shares are currently held short.
However Ironwood Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ironwood Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ironwood Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ironwood Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ironwood Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1886% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ironwood Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 189 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 Ironwood Pharmaceuticals.
