There are currently 6.7 million Pacira BioSciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Pacira BioSciences's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% down from 7.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pacira BioSciences shares can be evaluated.
Pacira BioSciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Pacira BioSciences's SIR currently stands at 14.55. In other words for every 100,000 Pacira BioSciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14550 shares are currently held short.
However Pacira BioSciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pacira BioSciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pacira BioSciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pacira BioSciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pacira BioSciences shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.1629% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pacira BioSciences shares, roughly 163 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 Pacira BioSciences.
