Shorting Genasys shares

There are currently 425,795 Genasys shares held short by investors – that's known as Genasys's "short interest". This figure is 63.3% down from 1.2 million last month.

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

Genasys's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Genasys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genasys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genasys shares traded daily (recently around 473105.55555556). Genasys's SIR currently stands at 0.9. In other words for every 100,000 Genasys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 900 shares are currently held short.

However Genasys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genasys shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genasys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genasys's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genasys shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0162% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genasys shares, roughly 16 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 Genasys.
