Shorting Purple Biotech shares

There are currently 41,881 Purple Biotech shares held short by investors – that's known as Purple Biotech's "short interest". This figure is 214% up from 13,339 last month.

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

Purple Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Purple Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Purple Biotech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Purple Biotech shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Purple Biotech's SIR currently stands at 0.04. In other words for every 100,000 Purple Biotech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 40 shares are currently held short.

However Purple Biotech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Purple Biotech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Purple Biotech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Purple Biotech's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Purple Biotech shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Purple Biotech shares, roughly 0 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 Purple Biotech.
