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

Gentherm Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Gentherm Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 2.65. In other words for every 100,000 Gentherm Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2650 shares are currently held short.

However Gentherm Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gentherm Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gentherm Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gentherm Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gentherm Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0249% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gentherm Incorporated shares, roughly 25 shares are currently held short).
