Shorting Ocular Therapeutix shares

There are currently 6.2 million Ocular Therapeutix shares held short by investors – that's known as Ocular Therapeutix's "short interest". This figure is 11.2% down from 6.9 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 1.6 million). Ocular Therapeutix's SIR currently stands at 3.77. In other words for every 100,000 Ocular Therapeutix shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3770 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 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ocular Therapeutix shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0969% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ocular Therapeutix shares, roughly 97 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 Ocular Therapeutix.
