Shorting Energous Corporation shares

There are currently 2.9 million Energous Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Energous Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% down from 3.2 million last month.

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

Energous Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Energous Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Energous Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Energous Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 5.5 million). Energous Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.52. In other words for every 100,000 Energous Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 520 shares are currently held short.

However Energous Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Energous Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Energous Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Energous Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Energous Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0416% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Energous Corporation 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 Energous Corporation.
