There are currently 3.0 million Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 112.9% up from 1.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million).

In other words for every 100,000 Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1410 shares are currently held short.

However Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.035% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation shares, roughly 35 shares are currently held short).
