Shorting China Finance Online CoLimited shares

There are currently 2,422 China Finance Online CoLimited shares held short by investors – that's known as China Finance Online CoLimited's "short interest". This figure is 77.5% down from 10,770 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting China Finance Online CoLimited shares can be evaluated.

China Finance Online CoLimited's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

China Finance Online CoLimited's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Finance Online CoLimited shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Finance Online CoLimited shares traded daily (recently around 242200). China Finance Online CoLimited's SIR currently stands at 0.01. In other words for every 100,000 China Finance Online CoLimited shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10 shares are currently held short.

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

Have China Finance Online CoLimited's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for China Finance Online CoLimited shares which in turn could have impacted China Finance Online CoLimited's share price.
