Shorting Odyssey Marine Exploration shares

There are currently 1.3 million Odyssey Marine Exploration shares held short by investors – that's known as Odyssey Marine Exploration's "short interest". This figure is 0.5% down from 1.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Odyssey Marine Exploration shares can be evaluated.

Odyssey Marine Exploration's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Odyssey Marine Exploration's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Odyssey Marine Exploration shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Odyssey Marine Exploration shares traded daily (recently around 24692.911010558). Odyssey Marine Exploration's SIR currently stands at 53.04. In other words for every 100,000 Odyssey Marine Exploration shares traded daily on the market, roughly 53040 shares are currently held short.

However Odyssey Marine Exploration's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Odyssey Marine Exploration shares, or, against the total number of tradable Odyssey Marine Exploration shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Odyssey Marine Exploration's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Odyssey Marine Exploration shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1128% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Odyssey Marine Exploration shares, roughly 113 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Odyssey Marine Exploration.
