Shorting Virgin Galactic shares

There are currently 43.7 million Virgin Galactic shares held short by investors – that's known as Virgin Galactic's "short interest". This figure is 8.3% up from 40.4 million last month.

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

Virgin Galactic's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Virgin Galactic's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Virgin Galactic shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Virgin Galactic shares traded daily (recently around 18.4 million). Virgin Galactic's SIR currently stands at 2.38. In other words for every 100,000 Virgin Galactic shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2380 shares are currently held short.

However Virgin Galactic's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Virgin Galactic shares, or, against the total number of tradable Virgin Galactic shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Virgin Galactic's short interest could be expressed as 0.19% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Virgin Galactic shares in existence, roughly 190 shares are currently held short) or 0.6362% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Virgin Galactic shares, roughly 636 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 Virgin Galactic.
