Shorting Obalon Therapeutics shares

There are currently 279,741 Obalon Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Obalon Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 11.6% down from 316,352 last month.

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

Obalon Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Obalon Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Obalon Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Obalon Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Obalon Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 0.26. In other words for every 100,000 Obalon Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 260 shares are currently held short.

However Obalon Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Obalon Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Obalon Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Obalon Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Obalon Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0324% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Obalon Therapeutics shares, roughly 32 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 Obalon Therapeutics.
