There are currently 929,000 Pliant Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Pliant Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 10.1% up from 843,599 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pliant Therapeutics shares can be evaluated.
Pliant Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pliant Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pliant Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 109810.87470449). Pliant Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 8.46. In other words for every 100,000 Pliant Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8460 shares are currently held short.
However Pliant Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pliant Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pliant Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pliant Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pliant Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0355% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pliant Therapeutics shares, roughly 36 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 Pliant Therapeutics.
