Shorting Tantech shares

There are currently 1.8 million Tantech shares held short by investors – that's known as Tantech's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% down from 1.8 million last month.

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

Tantech's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tantech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tantech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tantech shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Tantech's SIR currently stands at 1.52. In other words for every 100,000 Tantech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1520 shares are currently held short.

However Tantech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tantech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tantech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tantech's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tantech shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0662% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tantech shares, roughly 66 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 Tantech.
