Shorting Biomerica shares

There are currently 769,454 Biomerica shares held short by investors – that's known as Biomerica's "short interest". This figure is 3.7% down from 799,263 last month.

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

Biomerica's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Biomerica's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Biomerica shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Biomerica shares traded daily (recently around 87042.307692308). Biomerica's SIR currently stands at 8.84. In other words for every 100,000 Biomerica shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8840 shares are currently held short.

However Biomerica's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Biomerica shares, or, against the total number of tradable Biomerica shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Biomerica's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Biomerica shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.08% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Biomerica shares, roughly 80 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Biomerica.
