There are currently 302,452 Technical Communications Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Technical Communications Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7235.7% up from 4,123 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Technical Communications Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Technical Communications Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Technical Communications Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Technical Communications Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Technical Communications Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.29. In other words for every 100,000 Technical Communications Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 290 shares are currently held short.
However Technical Communications Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Technical Communications Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Technical Communications Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Technical Communications Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Technical Communications Corporation shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.2006% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Technical Communications Corporation shares, roughly 201 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 Technical Communications Corporation.
