Shorting Brightcove shares
There are currently 1.1 million Brightcove shares held short by investors – that's known as Brightcove's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Brightcove shares can be evaluated.
Brightcove's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Brightcove's SIR currently stands at 4.62. In other words for every 100,000 Brightcove shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4620 shares are currently held short.
However Brightcove's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Brightcove shares, or, against the total number of tradable Brightcove shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Brightcove's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Brightcove shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.042% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Brightcove shares, roughly 42 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 Brightcove.
