There are currently 351,392 Argo Group International shares held short by investors – that's known as Argo Group International's "short interest". This figure is 23.1% up from 285,363 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Argo Group International shares can be evaluated.

Argo Group International's SIR currently stands at 2.4. In other words for every 100,000 Argo Group International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2400 shares are currently held short.
However Argo Group International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Argo Group International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Argo Group International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Argo Group International's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Argo Group International shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0103% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Argo Group International shares, roughly 10 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 Argo Group International.
