Shorting Pfenex shares
There are currently 539,032 Pfenex shares held short by investors – that's known as Pfenex's "short interest". This figure is 31.3% down from 785,072 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pfenex shares can be evaluated.
Pfenex's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Pfenex's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pfenex shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pfenex shares traded daily (recently around 579604.30107527). Pfenex's SIR currently stands at 0.93. In other words for every 100,000 Pfenex shares traded daily on the market, roughly 930 shares are currently held short.
However Pfenex's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pfenex shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pfenex shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pfenex's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pfenex shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0184% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pfenex shares, roughly 18 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 Pfenex.
