There are currently 3.8 million Veeco Instruments shares held short by investors – that's known as Veeco Instruments's "short interest". This figure is 7.8% up from 3.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Veeco Instruments shares can be evaluated.
Veeco Instruments's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Veeco Instruments shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Veeco Instruments shares traded daily (recently around 336500.17889088). Veeco Instruments's SIR currently stands at 11.18. In other words for every 100,000 Veeco Instruments shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11180 shares are currently held short.
However Veeco Instruments's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Veeco Instruments shares, or, against the total number of tradable Veeco Instruments shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Veeco Instruments's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Veeco Instruments shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1132% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Veeco Instruments shares, roughly 113 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Veeco Instruments.
