There are currently 11.8 million Canopy Growth Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as Canopy Growth Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 10.3% down from 13.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Canopy Growth Corporation stocks can be evaluated.
Canopy Growth Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Canopy Growth Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Canopy Growth Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Canopy Growth Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 940765.21048451). Canopy Growth Corporation's SIR currently stands at 12.59. In other words for every 100,000 Canopy Growth Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 12590 stocks are currently held short.
However Canopy Growth Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Canopy Growth Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Canopy Growth Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Canopy Growth Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Canopy Growth Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0427% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Canopy Growth Corporation stocks, roughly 43 stocks are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the stock price and a discouraging interest in betting against Canopy Growth Corporation.
