There are currently 224,519 Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Evolution Petroleum Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 6.1% up from 211,564 last month.

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

Evolution Petroleum Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In other words for every 100,000 Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1040 shares are currently held short.

However Evolution Petroleum Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Evolution Petroleum Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0089% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares, roughly 9 shares are currently held short).
