Shorting Kopin Corporation shares

There are currently 1.2 million Kopin Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Kopin Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 32.4% down from 1.8 million last month.

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

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

Kopin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kopin Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kopin Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 730754.9382716). Kopin Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.62. In other words for every 100,000 Kopin Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1620 shares are currently held short.

However Kopin Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kopin Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kopin Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kopin Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kopin Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0153% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kopin Corporation shares, roughly 15 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 Kopin Corporation.
