There are currently 7.3 million CarParts-com shares held short by investors – that's known as CarParts-com's "short interest". This figure is 16.8% up from 6.3 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) is the quantity of CarParts-com shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CarParts-com shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). CarParts-com's SIR currently stands at 3.21. In other words for every 100,000 CarParts-com shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3210 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 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CarParts-com shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.2304% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CarParts-com shares, roughly 230 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 CarParts-com.
