Shorting Oxford Lane Capital shares

There are currently 381,100 Oxford Lane Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Oxford Lane Capital's "short interest". This figure is 85% up from 206,048 last month.

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

Oxford Lane Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Oxford Lane Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oxford Lane Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oxford Lane Capital shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Oxford Lane Capital's SIR currently stands at 0.33. In other words for every 100,000 Oxford Lane Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 330 shares are currently held short.

However Oxford Lane Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oxford Lane Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oxford Lane Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oxford Lane Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oxford Lane Capital shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0042% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oxford Lane Capital shares, roughly 4 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 Oxford Lane Capital.
