Shorting ChampionX Corporation shares

There are currently 4.6 million ChampionX Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as ChampionX Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.2% down from 5.0 million last month.

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

ChampionX Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ChampionX Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ChampionX Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ChampionX Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). ChampionX Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.41. In other words for every 100,000 ChampionX Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2410 shares are currently held short.

However ChampionX Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ChampionX Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable ChampionX Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ChampionX Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ChampionX Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0255% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ChampionX Corporation shares, roughly 26 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 ChampionX Corporation.
