Shorting Neptune Wellness Solutions shares

There are currently 10.7 million Neptune Wellness Solutions shares held short by investors – that's known as Neptune Wellness Solutions's "short interest". This figure is 18% up from 9.1 million last month.

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

Neptune Wellness Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Neptune Wellness Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Neptune Wellness Solutions shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Neptune Wellness Solutions shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Neptune Wellness Solutions's SIR currently stands at 9.29. In other words for every 100,000 Neptune Wellness Solutions shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9290 shares are currently held short.

However Neptune Wellness Solutions's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Neptune Wellness Solutions shares, or, against the total number of tradable Neptune Wellness Solutions shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Neptune Wellness Solutions's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Neptune Wellness Solutions shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0914% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Neptune Wellness Solutions shares, roughly 91 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Neptune Wellness Solutions.
