Shorting Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 530,641 Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Xenon Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 20.4% down from 666,486 last month.

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

Xenon Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Xenon Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 148223.74301676). Xenon Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 3.58. In other words for every 100,000 Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3580 shares are currently held short.

However Xenon Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Xenon Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0182% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Xenon Pharmaceuticals 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 Xenon Pharmaceuticals.
