Shorting Tilray shares

There are currently 30.0 million Tilray shares held short by investors – that's known as Tilray's "short interest". This figure is 13.9% down from 34.8 million last month.

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

Tilray's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tilray's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tilray shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tilray shares traded daily (recently around 16.1 million). Tilray's SIR currently stands at 1.86. In other words for every 100,000 Tilray shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1860 shares are currently held short.

However Tilray's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tilray shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tilray shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tilray's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tilray shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1939% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tilray shares, roughly 194 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 Tilray.
