Shorting Intelligent Systems Corporation shares

There are currently 878,725 Intelligent Systems Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Intelligent Systems Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.1% down from 879,197 last month.

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

Intelligent Systems Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Intelligent Systems Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Intelligent Systems Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Intelligent Systems Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 40851.929335193). Intelligent Systems Corporation's SIR currently stands at 21.51. In other words for every 100,000 Intelligent Systems Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 21510 shares are currently held short.

However Intelligent Systems Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Intelligent Systems Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Intelligent Systems Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Intelligent Systems Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Intelligent Systems Corporation shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1388% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Intelligent Systems Corporation shares, roughly 139 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Intelligent Systems Corporation.
