There are currently 2.2 million ORBCOMM shares held short by investors – that's known as ORBCOMM's "short interest". This figure is 42.2% up from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ORBCOMM shares can be evaluated.
ORBCOMM's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ORBCOMM shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ORBCOMM shares traded daily (recently around 657481.76291793). ORBCOMM's SIR currently stands at 3.29. In other words for every 100,000 ORBCOMM shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3290 shares are currently held short.
However ORBCOMM's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ORBCOMM shares, or, against the total number of tradable ORBCOMM shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ORBCOMM's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ORBCOMM shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0348% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ORBCOMM shares, roughly 35 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 ORBCOMM.
