Shorting Vascular Biogenics shares

There are currently 659,022 Vascular Biogenics shares held short by investors – that's known as Vascular Biogenics's "short interest". This figure is 61.9% up from 406,981 last month.

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

Vascular Biogenics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vascular Biogenics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vascular Biogenics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vascular Biogenics shares traded daily (recently around 323050). Vascular Biogenics's SIR currently stands at 2.04. In other words for every 100,000 Vascular Biogenics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2040 shares are currently held short.

However Vascular Biogenics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vascular Biogenics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vascular Biogenics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vascular Biogenics's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vascular Biogenics shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0177% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vascular Biogenics shares, roughly 18 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 Vascular Biogenics.
