Shorting Ocular Therapeutix shares

There are currently 5.2 million Ocular Therapeutix shares held short by investors – that's known as Ocular Therapeutix's "short interest". This figure is 10.6% down from 5.8 million last month.

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

Ocular Therapeutix's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ocular Therapeutix's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ocular Therapeutix shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ocular Therapeutix shares traded daily (recently around 706550.33921303). Ocular Therapeutix's SIR currently stands at 7.37. In other words for every 100,000 Ocular Therapeutix shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7370 shares are currently held short.

However Ocular Therapeutix's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ocular Therapeutix shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ocular Therapeutix shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ocular Therapeutix's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ocular Therapeutix shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0776% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ocular Therapeutix shares, roughly 78 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 Ocular Therapeutix.
