Shorting VIR Biotechnology shares

There are currently 8.4 million VIR Biotechnology shares held short by investors – that's known as VIR Biotechnology's "short interest". This figure is 14.3% down from 9.8 million last month.

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

VIR Biotechnology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

VIR Biotechnology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VIR Biotechnology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VIR Biotechnology shares traded daily (recently around 2.7 million). VIR Biotechnology's SIR currently stands at 3.16. In other words for every 100,000 VIR Biotechnology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3160 shares are currently held short.

However VIR Biotechnology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VIR Biotechnology shares, or, against the total number of tradable VIR Biotechnology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VIR Biotechnology's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VIR Biotechnology shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1312% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VIR Biotechnology shares, roughly 131 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 VIR Biotechnology.
