There are currently 1.1 million AgroFresh Solutions shares held short by investors – that's known as AgroFresh Solutions's "short interest". This figure is 26.2% down from 1.5 million last month.

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

AgroFresh Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AgroFresh Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AgroFresh Solutions shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AgroFresh Solutions shares traded daily (recently around 85592.478894858). AgroFresh Solutions's SIR currently stands at 13.03. In other words for every 100,000 AgroFresh Solutions shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13030 shares are currently held short.

However AgroFresh Solutions's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AgroFresh Solutions shares, or, against the total number of tradable AgroFresh Solutions shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AgroFresh Solutions's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AgroFresh Solutions shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0494% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AgroFresh Solutions shares, roughly 49 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against AgroFresh Solutions.
