Shorting ACM Research shares

There are currently 915,456 ACM Research shares held short by investors – that's known as ACM Research's "short interest". This figure is 12.3% down from 1.0 million last month.

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

ACM Research's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ACM Research's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ACM Research shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ACM Research shares traded daily (recently around 250124.59016393). ACM Research's SIR currently stands at 3.66. In other words for every 100,000 ACM Research shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3660 shares are currently held short.

However ACM Research's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ACM Research shares, or, against the total number of tradable ACM Research shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ACM Research's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ACM Research shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0656% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ACM Research shares, roughly 66 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 ACM Research.
