There are currently 142,339 Fuel Tech shares held short by investors – that's known as Fuel Tech's "short interest". This figure is 74.5% up from 81,566 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Fuel Tech shares can be evaluated.
Fuel Tech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fuel Tech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fuel Tech shares traded daily (recently around 124858.77192982). Fuel Tech's SIR currently stands at 1.14. In other words for every 100,000 Fuel Tech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1140 shares are currently held short.
However Fuel Tech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fuel Tech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fuel Tech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fuel Tech's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fuel Tech shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0076% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fuel Tech shares, roughly 8 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 Fuel Tech.

Over the last 12 months, Fuel Tech's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.3502 up to $1.49. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Fuel Tech's is 1.8224. This would suggest that Fuel Tech's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
