Shorting Omeros Corporation shares

There are currently 12.2 million Omeros Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Omeros Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2% down from 12.4 million last month.

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

Omeros Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Omeros Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Omeros Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Omeros Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 643022.79217345). Omeros Corporation's SIR currently stands at 18.91. In other words for every 100,000 Omeros Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 18910 shares are currently held short.

However Omeros Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Omeros Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Omeros Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Omeros Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.2% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Omeros Corporation shares in existence, roughly 200 shares are currently held short) or 0.2063% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Omeros Corporation shares, roughly 206 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Omeros Corporation.
