Shorting Acutus Medical shares

There are currently 1.9 million Acutus Medical shares held short by investors – that's known as Acutus Medical's "short interest". This figure is 41.8% up from 1.3 million last month.

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

Acutus Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Acutus Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Acutus Medical shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Acutus Medical shares traded daily (recently around 136907.45937962). Acutus Medical's SIR currently stands at 13.54. In other words for every 100,000 Acutus Medical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13540 shares are currently held short.

However Acutus Medical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Acutus Medical shares, or, against the total number of tradable Acutus Medical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Acutus Medical's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Acutus Medical shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1231% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Acutus Medical shares, roughly 123 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Acutus Medical.
