Shorting Canaan shares

There are currently 10.1 million Canaan shares held short by investors – that's known as Canaan's "short interest". This figure is 7% down from 10.9 million last month.

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

Canaan's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Canaan's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Canaan shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Canaan shares traded daily (recently around 8.2 million). Canaan's SIR currently stands at 1.24. In other words for every 100,000 Canaan shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1240 shares are currently held short.

However Canaan's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Canaan shares, or, against the total number of tradable Canaan shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Canaan's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Canaan shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1135% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Canaan shares, roughly 114 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 Canaan.
