Shorting Genasys shares

There are currently 692,558 Genasys shares held short by investors – that's known as Genasys's "short interest". This figure is 16.1% up from 596,550 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 133440.8477842). Genasys's SIR currently stands at 5.19. In other words for every 100,000 Genasys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5190 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 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genasys shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0281% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genasys shares, roughly 28 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Genasys.
