Shorting Air France-KLM shares

There are currently 256,183 Air France-KLM shares held short by investors – that's known as Air France-KLM's "short interest". This figure is 21.4% up from 211,105 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Air France-KLM shares can be evaluated.

Air France-KLM's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Air France-KLM's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Air France-KLM shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Air France-KLM shares traded daily (recently around 99295.736434109). Air France-KLM's SIR currently stands at 2.58. In other words for every 100,000 Air France-KLM shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2580 shares are currently held short.

However Air France-KLM's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Air France-KLM shares, or, against the total number of tradable Air France-KLM shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Air France-KLM's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Air France-KLM shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Air France-KLM shares, roughly 0 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 Air France-KLM.
