Shorting China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares

There are currently 10,281 China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as China Eastern Airlines Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% up from 10,111 last month.

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

China Eastern Airlines Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

China Eastern Airlines Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 8358.5365853659). China Eastern Airlines Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.23. In other words for every 100,000 China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1230 shares are currently held short.

However China Eastern Airlines Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case China Eastern Airlines Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0001% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable China Eastern Airlines Corporation shares, roughly 0 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 China Eastern Airlines Corporation.
