Shorting Second Sight Medical Products shares

There are currently 4.0 million Second Sight Medical Products shares held short by investors – that's known as Second Sight Medical Products's "short interest". This figure is 67.7% up from 2.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Second Sight Medical Products shares can be evaluated.

Second Sight Medical Products's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Second Sight Medical Products's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Second Sight Medical Products shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Second Sight Medical Products shares traded daily (recently around 8.2 million). Second Sight Medical Products's SIR currently stands at 0.49. In other words for every 100,000 Second Sight Medical Products shares traded daily on the market, roughly 490 shares are currently held short.

However Second Sight Medical Products's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Second Sight Medical Products shares, or, against the total number of tradable Second Sight Medical Products shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Second Sight Medical Products's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Second Sight Medical Products shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.2313% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Second Sight Medical Products shares, roughly 231 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 Second Sight Medical Products.
