Shorting Karyopharm Therapeutics shares

There are currently 15.0 million Karyopharm Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Karyopharm Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% up from 14.4 million last month.

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

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

Karyopharm Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Karyopharm Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Karyopharm Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Karyopharm Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 11.71. In other words for every 100,000 Karyopharm Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11710 shares are currently held short.

However Karyopharm Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Karyopharm Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Karyopharm Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Karyopharm Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.2% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Karyopharm Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 200 shares are currently held short) or 0.2144% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Karyopharm Therapeutics shares, roughly 214 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 Karyopharm Therapeutics.
