Shorting BlackRock Science and Technology Trust shares

There are currently 21,725 BlackRock Science and Technology Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as BlackRock Science and Technology Trust's "short interest". This figure is 5.4% up from 20,603 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BlackRock Science and Technology Trust shares can be evaluated.

BlackRock Science and Technology Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BlackRock Science and Technology Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BlackRock Science and Technology Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BlackRock Science and Technology Trust shares traded daily (recently around 120694.44444444). BlackRock Science and Technology Trust's SIR currently stands at 0.18. In other words for every 100,000 BlackRock Science and Technology Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 180 shares are currently held short.

However BlackRock Science and Technology Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BlackRock Science and Technology Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable BlackRock Science and Technology Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BlackRock Science and Technology Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BlackRock Science and Technology Trust shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0003% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BlackRock Science and Technology Trust shares, roughly 0 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 BlackRock Science and Technology Trust.
