Shorting Wave Life Sciences shares

There are currently 1.3 million Wave Life Sciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Wave Life Sciences's "short interest". This figure is 30.8% down from 1.8 million last month.

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

Wave Life Sciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Wave Life Sciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wave Life Sciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wave Life Sciences shares traded daily (recently around 488327.02702703). Wave Life Sciences's SIR currently stands at 2.59. In other words for every 100,000 Wave Life Sciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2590 shares are currently held short.

However Wave Life Sciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wave Life Sciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wave Life Sciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wave Life Sciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wave Life Sciences shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0414% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wave Life Sciences 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 Wave Life Sciences.
