Shorting MeiraGTx shares

There are currently 601,854 MeiraGTx shares held short by investors – that's known as MeiraGTx's "short interest". This figure is 37.1% up from 439,064 last month.

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

MeiraGTx's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MeiraGTx's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MeiraGTx shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MeiraGTx shares traded daily (recently around 172451.00286533). MeiraGTx's SIR currently stands at 3.49. In other words for every 100,000 MeiraGTx shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3490 shares are currently held short.

However MeiraGTx's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MeiraGTx shares, or, against the total number of tradable MeiraGTx shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MeiraGTx's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MeiraGTx shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0244% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MeiraGTx shares, roughly 24 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 MeiraGTx.
