Shorting Molecular Data shares

There are currently 157,949 Molecular Data shares held short by investors – that's known as Molecular Data's "short interest". This figure is 7631.2% up from 2,043 last month.

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

Molecular Data's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Molecular Data's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Molecular Data shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Molecular Data shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Molecular Data's SIR currently stands at 0.1. In other words for every 100,000 Molecular Data shares traded daily on the market, roughly 100 shares are currently held short.

However Molecular Data's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Molecular Data shares, or, against the total number of tradable Molecular Data shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Molecular Data's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Molecular Data shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Molecular Data shares, roughly 0 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 Molecular Data.
