Shorting 22nd Century Group shares

There are currently 9.8 million 22nd Century Group shares held short by investors – that's known as 22nd Century Group's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% up from 9.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting 22nd Century Group shares can be evaluated.

22nd Century Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

22nd Century Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of 22nd Century Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of 22nd Century Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). 22nd Century Group's SIR currently stands at 7.86. In other words for every 100,000 22nd Century Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7860 shares are currently held short.

However 22nd Century Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of 22nd Century Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable 22nd Century Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case 22nd Century Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 22nd Century Group shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0788% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable 22nd Century Group shares, roughly 79 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against 22nd Century Group.
