Shorting Ambac Financial Group shares

There are currently 1.9 million Ambac Financial Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Ambac Financial Group's "short interest". This figure is 8.1% down from 2.0 million last month.

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

Ambac Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ambac Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ambac Financial Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ambac Financial Group shares traded daily (recently around 151251.65189363). Ambac Financial Group's SIR currently stands at 12.41. In other words for every 100,000 Ambac Financial Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12410 shares are currently held short.

However Ambac Financial Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ambac Financial Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ambac Financial Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ambac Financial Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ambac Financial Group shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0872% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ambac Financial Group shares, roughly 87 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 Ambac Financial Group.
