Shorting OptiNose shares

There are currently 4.1 million OptiNose shares held short by investors – that's known as OptiNose's "short interest". This figure is 19.8% down from 5.1 million last month.

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

OptiNose's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

OptiNose's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of OptiNose shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of OptiNose shares traded daily (recently around 500758.72235872). OptiNose's SIR currently stands at 8.14. In other words for every 100,000 OptiNose shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8140 shares are currently held short.

However OptiNose's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of OptiNose shares, or, against the total number of tradable OptiNose shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case OptiNose's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 OptiNose shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1163% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable OptiNose shares, roughly 116 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 OptiNose.
