There are currently 732,132 Vicor Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Vicor Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 10.3% down from 816,330 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vicor Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Vicor Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vicor Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vicor Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 131206.4516129). Vicor Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.58. In other words for every 100,000 Vicor Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5580 shares are currently held short.
However Vicor Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vicor Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vicor Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vicor Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vicor Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0333% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vicor Corporation shares, roughly 33 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Vicor Corporation.
