Shorting China Southern Airlines Company shares

There are currently 30,680 China Southern Airlines Company shares held short by investors – that's known as China Southern Airlines Company's "short interest". This figure is 21.1% up from 25,335 last month.

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

China Southern Airlines Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

China Southern Airlines Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Southern Airlines Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Southern Airlines Company shares traded daily (recently around 22725.925925926). China Southern Airlines Company's SIR currently stands at 1.35.

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