Shorting CarParts-com shares

There are currently 8.8 million CarParts-com shares held short by investors – that's known as CarParts-com's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% up from 8.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CarParts-com shares can be evaluated.

CarParts-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CarParts-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CarParts-com shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CarParts-com shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). CarParts-com's SIR currently stands at 7.46. In other words for every 100,000 CarParts-com shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7460 shares are currently held short.

However CarParts-com's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CarParts-com shares, or, against the total number of tradable CarParts-com shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CarParts-com's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CarParts-com shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.2259% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CarParts-com shares, roughly 226 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against CarParts-com.
