Shorting Coda Octopus Group shares

There are currently 391,046 Coda Octopus Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Coda Octopus Group's "short interest". This figure is 2.4% down from 400,543 last month.

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

Coda Octopus Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Coda Octopus Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Coda Octopus Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Coda Octopus Group shares traded daily (recently around 22117.986425339). Coda Octopus Group's SIR currently stands at 17.68. In other words for every 100,000 Coda Octopus Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17680 shares are currently held short.

However Coda Octopus Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Coda Octopus Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Coda Octopus Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Coda Octopus Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Coda Octopus Group shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0543% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Coda Octopus Group shares, roughly 54 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Coda Octopus Group.

However, indirectly, the new 1300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Coda Octopus Group shares which in turn could have impacted Coda Octopus Group's share price.
