There are currently 29.3 million Aurora Cannabis stocks held short by investors – that's known as Aurora Cannabis's "short interest". This figure is 11% down from 32.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Aurora Cannabis stocks can be evaluated.
Aurora Cannabis's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Aurora Cannabis's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aurora Cannabis stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aurora Cannabis stocks traded daily (recently around 3.7 million). Aurora Cannabis's SIR currently stands at 7.98. In other words for every 100,000 Aurora Cannabis stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 7980 stocks are currently held short.
However Aurora Cannabis's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aurora Cannabis stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Aurora Cannabis stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aurora Cannabis's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Aurora Cannabis stocks in existence, roughly 160 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1644% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Aurora Cannabis stocks, roughly 164 stocks are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Aurora Cannabis.

However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Aurora Cannabis stocks which in turn could have impacted Aurora Cannabis's stock price.
Aurora Cannabis stock price volatility
