There are currently 6.0 million Vanda Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Vanda Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 4.2% down from 6.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vanda Pharmaceuticals shares can be evaluated.
Vanda Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vanda Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vanda Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 726357.97807552). Vanda Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 8.21. In other words for every 100,000 Vanda Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8210 shares are currently held short.
However Vanda Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vanda Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vanda Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vanda Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vanda Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1357% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vanda Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 136 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 Vanda Pharmaceuticals.
