Shorting Reata Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 3.1 million Reata Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Reata Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 8.5% down from 3.4 million last month.

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

Reata Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Reata Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Reata Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Reata Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 265630.23850085). Reata Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 11.74. In other words for every 100,000 Reata Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11740 shares are currently held short.

However Reata Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Reata Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Reata Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Reata Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Reata Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1448% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Reata Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 145 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Reata Pharmaceuticals.
