Shorting Karuna Therapeutics shares

There are currently 1.7 million Karuna Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Karuna Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 0.1% down from 1.7 million last month.

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

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

Karuna Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Karuna Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Karuna Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 116966.90042076). Karuna Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 14.26. In other words for every 100,000 Karuna Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14260 shares are currently held short.

However Karuna Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Karuna Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Karuna Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Karuna Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Karuna Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0733% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Karuna Therapeutics shares, roughly 73 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 Karuna Therapeutics.
