Shorting VirnetX Holding shares

There are currently 6.3 million VirnetX Holding shares held short by investors – that's known as VirnetX Holding's "short interest". This figure is 4.5% up from 6.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting VirnetX Holding shares can be evaluated.

VirnetX Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

VirnetX Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VirnetX Holding shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VirnetX Holding shares traded daily (recently around 690976.49006623). VirnetX Holding's SIR currently stands at 9.06. In other words for every 100,000 VirnetX Holding shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9060 shares are currently held short.

However VirnetX Holding's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VirnetX Holding shares, or, against the total number of tradable VirnetX Holding shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VirnetX Holding's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VirnetX Holding shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0985% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VirnetX Holding shares, roughly 99 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 VirnetX Holding.
