There are currently 1.3 million Outset Medical shares held short by investors – that's known as Outset Medical's "short interest". This figure is 35.2% up from 931,971 last month.

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

Outset Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Outset Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Outset Medical shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Outset Medical shares traded daily (recently around 282468.38565022). Outset Medical's SIR currently stands at 4.46. In other words for every 100,000 Outset Medical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4460 shares are currently held short.

However Outset Medical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Outset Medical shares, or, against the total number of tradable Outset Medical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Outset Medical's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Outset Medical shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0436% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Outset Medical shares, roughly 44 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 Outset Medical.
