Shorting Moderna shares

There are currently 22.9 million Moderna shares held short by investors – that's known as Moderna's "short interest". This figure is 14.4% up from 20.0 million last month.

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

Moderna's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Moderna's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Moderna shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Moderna shares traded daily (recently around 11.3 million). Moderna's SIR currently stands at 2.02. In other words for every 100,000 Moderna shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2020 shares are currently held short.

However Moderna's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Moderna shares, or, against the total number of tradable Moderna shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Moderna's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Moderna shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0925% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Moderna shares, roughly 93 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 Moderna.
