Shorting Silk Road Medical shares

There are currently 2.1 million Silk Road Medical shares held short by investors – that's known as Silk Road Medical's "short interest". This figure is 6% down from 2.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Silk Road Medical shares can be evaluated.

Silk Road Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Silk Road Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Silk Road Medical shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Silk Road Medical shares traded daily (recently around 212419.38461538). Silk Road Medical's SIR currently stands at 9.75. In other words for every 100,000 Silk Road Medical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9750 shares are currently held short.

However Silk Road Medical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Silk Road Medical shares, or, against the total number of tradable Silk Road Medical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Silk Road Medical's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Silk Road Medical shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0764% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Silk Road Medical shares, roughly 76 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Silk Road Medical.
