Shorting Baytex Energy shares

There are currently 13.2 million Baytex Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Baytex Energy's "short interest". This figure is 13.9% down from 15.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Baytex Energy shares can be evaluated.

Baytex Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Baytex Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Baytex Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Baytex Energy shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Baytex Energy's SIR currently stands at 13.13. In other words for every 100,000 Baytex Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13130 shares are currently held short.

However Baytex Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Baytex Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Baytex Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Baytex Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Baytex Energy shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Baytex Energy shares, roughly 0 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 Baytex Energy.
