Shorting Sangamo Therapeutics shares

There are currently 20.4 million Sangamo Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Sangamo Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 3.4% down from 21.1 million last month.

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

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

Sangamo Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sangamo Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sangamo Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Sangamo Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 16.87. In other words for every 100,000 Sangamo Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 16870 shares are currently held short.

However Sangamo Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sangamo Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sangamo Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sangamo Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sangamo Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1441% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sangamo Therapeutics shares, roughly 144 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 Sangamo Therapeutics.
