Shorting AquaBounty Technologies shares

There are currently 1.9 million AquaBounty Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as AquaBounty Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 8% up from 1.7 million last month.

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

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

AquaBounty Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AquaBounty Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AquaBounty Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 5.8 million). AquaBounty Technologies's SIR currently stands at 0.32. In other words for every 100,000 AquaBounty Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 320 shares are currently held short.

However AquaBounty Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AquaBounty Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable AquaBounty Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AquaBounty Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AquaBounty Technologies shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0515% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AquaBounty Technologies shares, roughly 52 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 AquaBounty Technologies.
