Shorting Akumin shares

There are currently 28,454 Akumin shares held short by investors – that's known as Akumin's "short interest". This figure is 32.1% down from 41,926 last month.

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

Akumin's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Akumin's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Akumin shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Akumin shares traded daily (recently around 177837.5). Akumin's SIR currently stands at 0.16. In other words for every 100,000 Akumin shares traded daily on the market, roughly 160 shares are currently held short.

However Akumin's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Akumin shares, or, against the total number of tradable Akumin shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Akumin's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Akumin shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0008% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Akumin shares, roughly 1 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 Akumin.
