There are currently 11.9 million Akorn shares held short by investors – that's known as Akorn's "short interest". This figure is 10.9% up from 10.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Akorn shares can be evaluated.
Akorn's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Akorn shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Akorn shares traded daily (recently around 24.3 million). Akorn's SIR currently stands at 0.49. In other words for every 100,000 Akorn shares traded daily on the market, roughly 490 shares are currently held short.
However Akorn's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Akorn shares, or, against the total number of tradable Akorn shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Akorn's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Akorn shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1029% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Akorn shares, roughly 103 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 Akorn.

Over the last 12 months, Akorn's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.0121 up to $4.18. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Akorn's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
