Shorting Marrone Bio Innovations shares

There are currently 1.9 million Marrone Bio Innovations shares held short by investors – that's known as Marrone Bio Innovations's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% down from 1.9 million last month.

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

Marrone Bio Innovations's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Marrone Bio Innovations's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Marrone Bio Innovations shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Marrone Bio Innovations shares traded daily (recently around 126531.87331536). Marrone Bio Innovations's SIR currently stands at 14.84. In other words for every 100,000 Marrone Bio Innovations shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14840 shares are currently held short.

However Marrone Bio Innovations's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marrone Bio Innovations shares, or, against the total number of tradable Marrone Bio Innovations shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marrone Bio Innovations's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Marrone Bio Innovations shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0371% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Marrone Bio Innovations shares, roughly 37 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 Marrone Bio Innovations.
