Shorting Otonomy shares

There are currently 601,472 Otonomy shares held short by investors – that's known as Otonomy's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 620,893 last month.

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

Otonomy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Otonomy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Otonomy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Otonomy shares traded daily (recently around 170872.72727273). Otonomy's SIR currently stands at 3.52. In other words for every 100,000 Otonomy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3520 shares are currently held short.

However Otonomy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Otonomy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Otonomy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Otonomy's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Otonomy shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0131% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Otonomy shares, roughly 13 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 Otonomy.
