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

Aspen Aerogels's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aspen Aerogels's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aspen Aerogels shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aspen Aerogels shares traded daily (recently around 228741.00719424). Aspen Aerogels's SIR currently stands at 1.39. In other words for every 100,000 Aspen Aerogels shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1390 shares are currently held short.

However Aspen Aerogels's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aspen Aerogels shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aspen Aerogels shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aspen Aerogels's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aspen Aerogels shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.014% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aspen Aerogels shares, roughly 14 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 Aspen Aerogels.
