Shorting Kala Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 8.5 million Kala Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Kala Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% down from 8.5 million last month.

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

Kala Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kala Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kala Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kala Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Kala Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 3.95. In other words for every 100,000 Kala Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3950 shares are currently held short.

However Kala Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kala Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kala Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kala Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kala Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.2021% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kala Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 202 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Kala Pharmaceuticals.
