There are currently 1.9 million Fulgent Genetics shares held short by investors – that's known as Fulgent Genetics's "short interest". This figure is 24.2% up from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Fulgent Genetics shares can be evaluated.

Fulgent Genetics's SIR currently stands at 1.49. In other words for every 100,000 Fulgent Genetics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1490 shares are currently held short.
However Fulgent Genetics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fulgent Genetics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fulgent Genetics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fulgent Genetics's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fulgent Genetics shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1533% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fulgent Genetics shares, roughly 153 shares are currently held short).
