Shorting Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 806,384 Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Xenon Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 11.9% up from 720,710 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 119641.54302671). Xenon Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 6.74. In other words for every 100,000 Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6740 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 0.0237% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Xenon Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 24 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Xenon Pharmaceuticals.
