Shorting Colony Capital shares

There are currently 66.3 million Colony Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Colony Capital's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% up from 64.2 million last month.

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

Colony Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Colony Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Colony Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Colony Capital shares traded daily (recently around 4.9 million). Colony Capital's SIR currently stands at 13.42. In other words for every 100,000 Colony Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13420 shares are currently held short.

However Colony Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Colony Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Colony Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Colony Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Colony Capital shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1948% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Colony Capital shares, roughly 195 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Colony Capital.
