Shorting Oramed Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 176,036 Oramed Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Oramed Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 8.8% down from 193,092 last month.

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

Oramed Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Oramed Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oramed Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oramed Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 222830.37974684). Oramed Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 0.79. In other words for every 100,000 Oramed Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 790 shares are currently held short.

However Oramed Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oramed Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oramed Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oramed Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oramed Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0086% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oramed Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 9 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 Oramed Pharmaceuticals.
