There are currently 843,292 Vertex shares held short by investors – that's known as Vertex's "short interest". This figure is 16.4% up from 724,363 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vertex shares can be evaluated.
Vertex's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vertex shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vertex shares traded daily (recently around 585619.44444444). Vertex's SIR currently stands at 1.44. In other words for every 100,000 Vertex shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1440 shares are currently held short.
However Vertex's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vertex shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vertex shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vertex's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vertex shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0329% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vertex shares, roughly 33 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 Vertex.
