Vicor Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

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 0.0386% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vicor Corporation shares, roughly 39 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.
