Shorting II-VI Incorporated shares

There are currently 17.3 million II-VI Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as II-VI Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 17.4 million last month.

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

II-VI Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

II-VI Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of II-VI Incorporated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of II-VI Incorporated shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). II-VI Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 12.45. In other words for every 100,000 II-VI Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12450 shares are currently held short.

However II-VI Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of II-VI Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable II-VI Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case II-VI Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 II-VI Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.1668% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable II-VI Incorporated shares, roughly 167 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 II-VI Incorporated.
