Shorting Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure shares

There are currently 4.5 million Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure shares held short by investors – that's known as Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure's "short interest". This figure is 10.3% up from 4.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure shares can be evaluated.

Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure shares traded daily (recently around 548495.11599512). Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure's SIR currently stands at 8.19. In other words for every 100,000 Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8190 shares are currently held short.

However Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure shares, or, against the total number of tradable Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0728% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure shares, roughly 73 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure.
