Shorting Magenta Therapeutics shares

There are currently 1.9 million Magenta Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Magenta Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 16.1% up from 1.6 million last month.

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

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

Magenta Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Magenta Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Magenta Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 184070.41420118). Magenta Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 10.14. In other words for every 100,000 Magenta Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10140 shares are currently held short.

However Magenta Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Magenta Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Magenta Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Magenta Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Magenta Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0629% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Magenta Therapeutics shares, roughly 63 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 Magenta Therapeutics.
