Shorting Akoustis Technologies shares

There are currently 8.4 million Akoustis Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Akoustis Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 2.8% down from 8.7 million last month.

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

Akoustis Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Akoustis Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Akoustis Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Akoustis Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 839870.85828343). Akoustis Technologies's SIR currently stands at 10.02. In other words for every 100,000 Akoustis Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10020 shares are currently held short.

However Akoustis Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Akoustis Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Akoustis Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Akoustis Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.22% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Akoustis Technologies shares in existence, roughly 220 shares are currently held short) or 0.2473% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Akoustis Technologies shares, roughly 247 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 Akoustis Technologies.
