Shorting Hudson Technologies shares

There are currently 1.4 million Hudson Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Hudson Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 10.1% down from 1.6 million last month.

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

Hudson Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Hudson Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hudson Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hudson Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 93916.823687752). Hudson Technologies's SIR currently stands at 14.86. In other words for every 100,000 Hudson Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14860 shares are currently held short.

However Hudson Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hudson Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hudson Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hudson Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hudson Technologies shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0413% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hudson Technologies shares, roughly 41 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Hudson Technologies.
