Shorting Vuzix Corporation shares

There are currently 4.4 million Vuzix Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Vuzix Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 15.7% down from 5.2 million last month.

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

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

Vuzix Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vuzix Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vuzix Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3.4 million). Vuzix Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.3. In other words for every 100,000 Vuzix Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1300 shares are currently held short.

However Vuzix Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vuzix Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vuzix Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vuzix Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vuzix Corporation shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1137% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vuzix Corporation shares, roughly 114 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 Vuzix Corporation.
