Shorting OrthoPediatrics shares

There are currently 2.9 million OrthoPediatrics shares held short by investors – that's known as OrthoPediatrics's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 2.9 million last month.

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

OrthoPediatrics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

OrthoPediatrics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of OrthoPediatrics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of OrthoPediatrics shares traded daily (recently around 209521.14695341). OrthoPediatrics's SIR currently stands at 13.95. In other words for every 100,000 OrthoPediatrics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13950 shares are currently held short.

However OrthoPediatrics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of OrthoPediatrics shares, or, against the total number of tradable OrthoPediatrics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case OrthoPediatrics's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 OrthoPediatrics shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.2218% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable OrthoPediatrics shares, roughly 222 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against OrthoPediatrics.
