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

Columbus McKinnon Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Columbus McKinnon Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 123693.50961538). Columbus McKinnon Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.16. In other words for every 100,000 Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4160 shares are currently held short.

However Columbus McKinnon Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Columbus McKinnon Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0186% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares, roughly 19 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 Columbus McKinnon Corporation.
