Shorting Surface Oncology shares

There are currently 1.0 million Surface Oncology shares held short by investors – that's known as Surface Oncology's "short interest". This figure is 56.6% up from 656,489 last month.

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

Surface Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Surface Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Surface Oncology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Surface Oncology shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Surface Oncology's SIR currently stands at 0.82. In other words for every 100,000 Surface Oncology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 820 shares are currently held short.

However Surface Oncology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Surface Oncology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Surface Oncology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Surface Oncology's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Surface Oncology shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0354% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Surface Oncology shares, roughly 35 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 Surface Oncology.
