Shorting Marinus Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 4.6 million Marinus Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Marinus Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 19.3% up from 3.9 million last month.

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

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

Marinus Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Marinus Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Marinus Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 673506.30498534). Marinus Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 6.82. In other words for every 100,000 Marinus Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6820 shares are currently held short.

However Marinus Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marinus Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Marinus Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marinus Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Marinus Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.1506% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Marinus Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 151 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 Marinus Pharmaceuticals.
