Shorting SIGA Technologies shares

There are currently 1.9 million SIGA Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as SIGA Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 4.7% up from 1.8 million last month.

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

SIGA Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SIGA Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SIGA Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SIGA Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 334449.74093264). SIGA Technologies's SIR currently stands at 5.79. In other words for every 100,000 SIGA Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5790 shares are currently held short.

However SIGA Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SIGA Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable SIGA Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SIGA Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SIGA Technologies shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.039% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SIGA Technologies shares, roughly 39 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 SIGA Technologies.
