There are currently 1.7 million Enanta Pharmaceuticals stocks held short by investors – that's known as Enanta Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 6.8% down from 1.9 million last month.

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

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

Enanta Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Enanta Pharmaceuticals stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Enanta Pharmaceuticals stocks traded daily (recently around 165821.7349857). Enanta Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 10.49. In other words for every 100,000 Enanta Pharmaceuticals stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 10490 stocks are currently held short.

However Enanta Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Enanta Pharmaceuticals stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Enanta Pharmaceuticals stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Enanta Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Enanta Pharmaceuticals stocks in existence, roughly 90 stocks are currently held short) or 0.121% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Enanta Pharmaceuticals stocks, roughly 121 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the stock price and a discouraging interest in betting against Enanta Pharmaceuticals.
