Shorting IRIDEX Corporation shares

There are currently 137,055 IRIDEX Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as IRIDEX Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.2% down from 143,102 last month.

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

IRIDEX Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

IRIDEX Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IRIDEX Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IRIDEX Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 47588.541666667). IRIDEX Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.88. In other words for every 100,000 IRIDEX Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2880 shares are currently held short.

However IRIDEX Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IRIDEX Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable IRIDEX Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IRIDEX Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IRIDEX Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0106% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IRIDEX Corporation shares, roughly 11 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against IRIDEX Corporation.
