Shorting Protagonist Therapeutics shares

There are currently 3.4 million Protagonist Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Protagonist Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 3.5 million last month.

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

Protagonist Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Protagonist Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Protagonist Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Protagonist Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 553269.69205835). Protagonist Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 6.17. In other words for every 100,000 Protagonist Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6170 shares are currently held short.

However Protagonist Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Protagonist Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Protagonist Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Protagonist Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Protagonist Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1162% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Protagonist Therapeutics 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 Protagonist Therapeutics.
