Shorting Cameco Corporation shares
There are currently 10.5 million Cameco Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Cameco Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1% down from 10.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cameco Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Cameco Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Cameco Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cameco Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cameco Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 4.7 million). Cameco Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.22. In other words for every 100,000 Cameco Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2220 shares are currently held short.
However Cameco Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cameco Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cameco Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cameco Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cameco Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0265% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cameco Corporation shares, roughly 27 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 Cameco Corporation.
