Shorting Patriot National Bancorp shares

There are currently 18,903 Patriot National Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Patriot National Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% up from 18,785 last month.

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

Patriot National Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Patriot National Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Patriot National Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Patriot National Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 1358.950395399). Patriot National Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 13.91. In other words for every 100,000 Patriot National Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13910 shares are currently held short.

However Patriot National Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Patriot National Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Patriot National Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Patriot National Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Patriot National Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0142% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Patriot National Bancorp shares, roughly 14 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 Patriot National Bancorp.
