Shorting Zymeworks shares

There are currently 1.3 million Zymeworks shares held short by investors – that's known as Zymeworks's "short interest". This figure is 29.9% down from 1.9 million last month.

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

Zymeworks's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zymeworks's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zymeworks shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zymeworks shares traded daily (recently around 269386.96537678). Zymeworks's SIR currently stands at 4.91. In other words for every 100,000 Zymeworks shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4910 shares are currently held short.

However Zymeworks's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zymeworks shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zymeworks shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zymeworks's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zymeworks shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0291% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zymeworks shares, roughly 29 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 Zymeworks.
