There are currently 1.1 million Communications Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Communications Systems's "short interest". This figure is 256.7% up from 299,662 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Communications Systems shares can be evaluated.
Communications Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Communications Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Communications Systems shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Communications Systems's SIR currently stands at 0.64. In other words for every 100,000 Communications Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 640 shares are currently held short.
However Communications Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Communications Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Communications Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Communications Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Communications Systems shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1561% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Communications Systems shares, roughly 156 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 Communications Systems.
