TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6.3 million Verastem shares held short by investors – that's known as Verastem's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 6.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Verastem shares can be evaluated.
Verastem's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Verastem shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Verastem shares traded daily (recently around 3.2 million). Verastem's SIR currently stands at 1.93. In other words for every 100,000 Verastem shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1930 shares are currently held short.
However Verastem's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Verastem shares, or, against the total number of tradable Verastem shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Verastem's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Verastem shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0414% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Verastem shares, roughly 41 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 Verastem.
