Shorting Marchex shares

There are currently 717,216 Marchex shares held short by investors – that's known as Marchex's "short interest". This figure is 17% up from 613,099 last month.

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

Marchex's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Marchex's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Marchex shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Marchex shares traded daily (recently around 161535.13513514). Marchex's SIR currently stands at 4.44. In other words for every 100,000 Marchex shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4440 shares are currently held short.

However Marchex's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marchex shares, or, against the total number of tradable Marchex shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marchex's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Marchex shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0284% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Marchex shares, roughly 28 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 Marchex.
