Shorting Akerna shares

There are currently 2.5 million Akerna shares held short by investors – that's known as Akerna's "short interest". This figure is 6.9% down from 2.7 million last month.

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

Akerna's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Akerna's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Akerna shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Akerna shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Akerna's SIR currently stands at 1.94. In other words for every 100,000 Akerna shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1940 shares are currently held short.

However Akerna's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Akerna shares, or, against the total number of tradable Akerna shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Akerna's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Akerna shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.117% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Akerna shares, roughly 117 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 Akerna.
