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

Quanterix Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Quanterix Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Quanterix Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Quanterix Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 200219.73684211).

However Quanterix Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Quanterix Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Quanterix Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Quanterix Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Quanterix Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0233% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Quanterix Corporation shares, roughly 23 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 Quanterix Corporation.
