Shorting Aware shares

There are currently 40,175 Aware shares held short by investors – that's known as Aware's "short interest". This figure is 37.3% up from 29,251 last month.

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

Aware's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aware's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aware shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aware shares traded daily (recently around 33760.504201681). Aware's SIR currently stands at 1.19. In other words for every 100,000 Aware shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1190 shares are currently held short.

However Aware's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aware shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aware shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aware's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aware shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0034% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aware shares, roughly 3 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 Aware.
