Shorting Metacrine shares

There are currently 122,711 Metacrine shares held short by investors – that's known as Metacrine's "short interest". This figure is 22% up from 100,545 last month.

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

Metacrine's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Metacrine's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Metacrine shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Metacrine shares traded daily (recently around 43514.539007092). Metacrine's SIR currently stands at 2.82. In other words for every 100,000 Metacrine shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2820 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Metacrine's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Metacrine's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Metacrine shares, or, against the total number of tradable Metacrine shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Metacrine's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Metacrine shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0069% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Metacrine shares, roughly 7 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 Metacrine.
