Shorting vTv Therapeutics shares

There are currently 2.1 million vTv Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as vTv Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 8% up from 1.9 million last month.

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

vTv Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

vTv Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of vTv Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of vTv Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 902524.13793103). vTv Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 2.32. In other words for every 100,000 vTv Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2320 shares are currently held short.

However vTv Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of vTv Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable vTv Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case vTv Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 vTv Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.1266% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable vTv Therapeutics shares, roughly 127 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 vTv Therapeutics.
