Shorting Acacia Research Corporation shares

There are currently 1.3 million Acacia Research Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Acacia Research Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% up from 1.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Acacia Research Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Acacia Research Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Acacia Research Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Acacia Research Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Acacia Research Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 623518.00947867). Acacia Research Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.11. In other words for every 100,000 Acacia Research Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2110 shares are currently held short.

However Acacia Research Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Acacia Research Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Acacia Research Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Acacia Research Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Acacia Research Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0269% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Acacia Research Corporation shares, roughly 27 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 Acacia Research Corporation.
