There are currently 2.6 million Century Aluminum Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Century Aluminum Company's "short interest". This figure is 13.4% up from 2.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Century Aluminum Company shares can be evaluated.
Century Aluminum Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Century Aluminum Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Century Aluminum Company shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Century Aluminum Company's SIR currently stands at 2.45. In other words for every 100,000 Century Aluminum Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2450 shares are currently held short.
However Century Aluminum Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Century Aluminum Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Century Aluminum Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Century Aluminum Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Century Aluminum Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0515% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Century Aluminum Company shares, roughly 52 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 Century Aluminum Company.
