Shorting Cincinnati Bell shares

There are currently 3.6 million Cincinnati Bell shares held short by investors – that's known as Cincinnati Bell's "short interest". This figure is 14.4% up from 3.1 million last month.

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

Cincinnati Bell's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cincinnati Bell's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cincinnati Bell shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cincinnati Bell shares traded daily (recently around 486424.52316076). Cincinnati Bell's SIR currently stands at 7.34. In other words for every 100,000 Cincinnati Bell shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7340 shares are currently held short.

However Cincinnati Bell's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cincinnati Bell shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cincinnati Bell shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cincinnati Bell's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cincinnati Bell shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0753% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cincinnati Bell shares, roughly 75 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Cincinnati Bell.

However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cincinnati Bell shares which in turn could have impacted Cincinnati Bell's share price.
