There are currently 5.1 million Pacific Ethanol shares held short by investors – that's known as Pacific Ethanol's "short interest". This figure is 22.3% up from 4.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pacific Ethanol shares can be evaluated.
Pacific Ethanol's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pacific Ethanol shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pacific Ethanol shares traded daily (recently around 7.0 million). Pacific Ethanol's SIR currently stands at 0.73. In other words for every 100,000 Pacific Ethanol shares traded daily on the market, roughly 730 shares are currently held short.
However Pacific Ethanol's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pacific Ethanol shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pacific Ethanol shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pacific Ethanol's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pacific Ethanol shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0777% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pacific Ethanol shares, roughly 78 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 Pacific Ethanol.

However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pacific Ethanol shares which in turn could have impacted Pacific Ethanol's share price.
