Shorting Veracyte shares

There are currently 3.9 million Veracyte shares held short by investors – that's known as Veracyte's "short interest". This figure is 9.6% down from 4.3 million last month.

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

Veracyte's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Veracyte's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Veracyte shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Veracyte shares traded daily (recently around 796831.70731707). Veracyte's SIR currently stands at 4.92. In other words for every 100,000 Veracyte shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4920 shares are currently held short.

However Veracyte's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Veracyte shares, or, against the total number of tradable Veracyte shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Veracyte's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Veracyte shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0587% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Veracyte shares, roughly 59 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 Veracyte.
