Shorting AeroCentury shares

There are currently 589,775 AeroCentury shares held short by investors – that's known as AeroCentury's "short interest". This figure is 1492.8% up from 37,027 last month.

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

AeroCentury's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AeroCentury's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AeroCentury shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AeroCentury shares traded daily (recently around 11.8 million). AeroCentury's SIR currently stands at 0.05. In other words for every 100,000 AeroCentury shares traded daily on the market, roughly 50 shares are currently held short.

However AeroCentury's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AeroCentury shares, or, against the total number of tradable AeroCentury shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AeroCentury's short interest could be expressed as 0.38% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AeroCentury shares in existence, roughly 380 shares are currently held short) or 0.4929% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AeroCentury shares, roughly 493 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 AeroCentury.
