Shorting Delcath Systems shares

There are currently 181,313 Delcath Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Delcath Systems's "short interest". This figure is 19.8% up from 151,336 last month.

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

Delcath Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Delcath Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Delcath Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Delcath Systems shares traded daily (recently around 166342.20183486). Delcath Systems's SIR currently stands at 1.09. In other words for every 100,000 Delcath Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1090 shares are currently held short.

However Delcath Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Delcath Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Delcath Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Delcath Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Delcath Systems shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0351% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Delcath Systems shares, roughly 35 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 Delcath Systems.
