Shorting Carver Bancorp shares

There are currently 48,902 Carver Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Carver Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 48.7% up from 32,882 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Carver Bancorp shares can be evaluated.

Carver Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Carver Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Carver Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Carver Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 543355.55555556). Carver Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 0.09. In other words for every 100,000 Carver Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 90 shares are currently held short.

However Carver Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Carver Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Carver Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Carver Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Carver Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0545% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Carver Bancorp shares, roughly 55 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 Carver Bancorp.
