Brinker International's SIR currently stands at 1.98. In other words for every 100,000 Brinker International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1980 shares are currently held short.
However Brinker International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Brinker International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Brinker International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Brinker International's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Brinker International shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0631% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Brinker International shares, roughly 63 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 Brinker International.
