Shorting Yield10 Bioscience shares

There are currently 54,412 Yield10 Bioscience shares held short by investors – that's known as Yield10 Bioscience's "short interest". This figure is 120.2% up from 24,711 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Yield10 Bioscience shares can be evaluated.

Yield10 Bioscience's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Yield10 Bioscience's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Yield10 Bioscience shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Yield10 Bioscience shares traded daily (recently around 43529.6). Yield10 Bioscience's SIR currently stands at 1.25. In other words for every 100,000 Yield10 Bioscience shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1250 shares are currently held short.

However Yield10 Bioscience's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Yield10 Bioscience shares, or, against the total number of tradable Yield10 Bioscience shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Yield10 Bioscience's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Yield10 Bioscience shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0188% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Yield10 Bioscience shares, roughly 19 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 Yield10 Bioscience.

Have Yield10 Bioscience's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 3900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Yield10 Bioscience shares which in turn could have impacted Yield10 Bioscience's share price.
