Shorting Algonquin Power-and-Utilities shares

There are currently 16.9 million Algonquin Power-and-Utilities shares held short by investors – that's known as Algonquin Power-and-Utilities's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% up from 16.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Algonquin Power-and-Utilities shares can be evaluated.

Algonquin Power-and-Utilities's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Algonquin Power-and-Utilities's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Algonquin Power-and-Utilities shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Algonquin Power-and-Utilities shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Algonquin Power-and-Utilities's SIR currently stands at 10.46. In other words for every 100,000 Algonquin Power-and-Utilities shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10460 shares are currently held short.

However Algonquin Power-and-Utilities's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Algonquin Power-and-Utilities shares, or, against the total number of tradable Algonquin Power-and-Utilities shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Algonquin Power-and-Utilities's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Algonquin Power-and-Utilities shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0274% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Algonquin Power-and-Utilities shares, roughly 27 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 Algonquin Power-and-Utilities.
