There are currently 1.1 million Praxis Precision Medicines shares held short by investors – that's known as Praxis Precision Medicines's "short interest". This figure is 103.4% up from 543,282 last month.

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

Praxis Precision Medicines's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Praxis Precision Medicines's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Praxis Precision Medicines shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Praxis Precision Medicines shares traded daily (recently around 476404.74137931). Praxis Precision Medicines's SIR currently stands at 2.32. In other words for every 100,000 Praxis Precision Medicines shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2320 shares are currently held short.

However Praxis Precision Medicines's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Praxis Precision Medicines shares, or, against the total number of tradable Praxis Precision Medicines shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Praxis Precision Medicines's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Praxis Precision Medicines shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0416% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Praxis Precision Medicines shares, roughly 42 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 Praxis Precision Medicines.
