TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 21.3 million Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares held short by investors – that's known as Bed Bath-and-Beyond's "short interest". This figure is 3.4% down from 22.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares can be evaluated.
Bed Bath-and-Beyond's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Bed Bath-and-Beyond's SIR currently stands at 10.35. In other words for every 100,000 Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10350 shares are currently held short.
However Bed Bath-and-Beyond's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bed Bath-and-Beyond's short interest could be expressed as 0.2% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares in existence, roughly 200 shares are currently held short) or 0.2178% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares, roughly 218 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 Bed Bath-and-Beyond.
