Shorting Zosano Pharma Corporation shares

There are currently 8.2 million Zosano Pharma Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Zosano Pharma Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.8% up from 8.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zosano Pharma Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Zosano Pharma Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zosano Pharma Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zosano Pharma Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zosano Pharma Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 12.3 million). Zosano Pharma Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.67. In other words for every 100,000 Zosano Pharma Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 670 shares are currently held short.

However Zosano Pharma Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zosano Pharma Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zosano Pharma Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zosano Pharma Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zosano Pharma Corporation shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0829% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zosano Pharma Corporation shares, roughly 83 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 Zosano Pharma Corporation.

Have Zosano Pharma Corporation's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Zosano Pharma Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Zosano Pharma Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Zosano Pharma Corporation's share price.
