There are currently 3.2 million Top Ships shares held short by investors – that's known as Top Ships's "short interest". This figure is 49% up from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Top Ships shares can be evaluated.
Top Ships's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Top Ships shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Top Ships shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million). Top Ships's SIR currently stands at 1.08. In other words for every 100,000 Top Ships shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1080 shares are currently held short.
However Top Ships's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Top Ships shares, or, against the total number of tradable Top Ships shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Top Ships's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Top Ships shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0791% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Top Ships shares, roughly 79 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 Top Ships.

However, indirectly, the new 2400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Top Ships shares which in turn could have impacted Top Ships's share price.
