Shorting Twist Bioscience Corporation shares

There are currently 1.8 million Twist Bioscience Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Twist Bioscience Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 22.4% down from 2.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Twist Bioscience Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Twist Bioscience Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Twist Bioscience Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Twist Bioscience Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Twist Bioscience Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 784200). Twist Bioscience Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.35. In other words for every 100,000 Twist Bioscience Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2350 shares are currently held short.

However Twist Bioscience Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Twist Bioscience Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Twist Bioscience Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Twist Bioscience Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Twist Bioscience Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0396% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Twist Bioscience Corporation shares, roughly 40 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 Twist Bioscience Corporation.
