Shorting CHS shares

There are currently 14,747 CHS shares held short by investors – that's known as CHS's "short interest". This figure is 52.1% up from 9,698 last month.

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

CHS's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CHS's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CHS shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CHS shares traded daily (recently around inf billion). CHS's SIR currently stands at 0. In other words for every 100,000 CHS shares traded daily on the market, roughly 0 shares are currently held short.

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