Shorting Moleculin Biotech shares

There are currently 2.6 million Moleculin Biotech shares held short by investors – that's known as Moleculin Biotech's "short interest". This figure is 11.3% down from 2.9 million last month.

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

Moleculin Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Moleculin Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Moleculin Biotech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Moleculin Biotech shares traded daily (recently around 404352.72161742). Moleculin Biotech's SIR currently stands at 6.43. In other words for every 100,000 Moleculin Biotech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6430 shares are currently held short.

However Moleculin Biotech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Moleculin Biotech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Moleculin Biotech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Moleculin Biotech's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Moleculin Biotech shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0475% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Moleculin Biotech shares, roughly 48 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 Moleculin Biotech.
