There are currently 28,093 Electro-Sensors shares held short by investors – that's known as Electro-Sensors's "short interest". This figure is 25.4% down from 37,654 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Electro-Sensors shares can be evaluated.
Electro-Sensors's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Electro-Sensors shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Electro-Sensors shares traded daily (recently around 100332.14285714). Electro-Sensors's SIR currently stands at 0.28. In other words for every 100,000 Electro-Sensors shares traded daily on the market, roughly 280 shares are currently held short.
However Electro-Sensors's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Electro-Sensors shares, or, against the total number of tradable Electro-Sensors shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Electro-Sensors's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Electro-Sensors shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0126% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Electro-Sensors shares, roughly 13 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 Electro-Sensors.
