Shorting Birks Group shares

There are currently 80,535 Birks Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Birks Group's "short interest". This figure is 82.9% up from 44,033 last month.

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

Birks Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Birks Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Birks Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Birks Group shares traded daily (recently around 732136.36363636). Birks Group's SIR currently stands at 0.11. In other words for every 100,000 Birks Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 110 shares are currently held short.

However Birks Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Birks Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Birks Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Birks Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Birks Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0186% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Birks Group shares, roughly 19 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 Birks Group.
