Shorting Ambow Education Holding shares

There are currently 129,398 Ambow Education Holding shares held short by investors – that's known as Ambow Education Holding's "short interest". This figure is 18.5% up from 109,213 last month.

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

Ambow Education Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ambow Education Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ambow Education Holding shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ambow Education Holding shares traded daily (recently around 462135.71428571). Ambow Education Holding's SIR currently stands at 0.28. In other words for every 100,000 Ambow Education Holding shares traded daily on the market, roughly 280 shares are currently held short.

However Ambow Education Holding's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ambow Education Holding shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ambow Education Holding shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ambow Education Holding's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ambow Education Holding shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ambow Education Holding 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 Ambow Education Holding.
