There are currently 887,565 Voyager Therapeutics stocks held short by investors – that's known as Voyager Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% up from 874,329 last month.

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

Voyager Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Voyager Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Voyager Therapeutics stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Voyager Therapeutics stocks traded daily (recently around 558216.98113208). Voyager Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 1.59. In other words for every 100,000 Voyager Therapeutics stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1590 stocks are currently held short.

However Voyager Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Voyager Therapeutics stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Voyager Therapeutics stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Voyager Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Voyager Therapeutics stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0398% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Voyager Therapeutics stocks, roughly 40 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Voyager Therapeutics.
