Shorting comScore shares

There are currently 3.4 million comScore shares held short by investors – that's known as comScore's "short interest". This figure is 5.3% down from 3.6 million last month.

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

comScore's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

comScore's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of comScore shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of comScore shares traded daily (recently around 414401.22699386). comScore's SIR currently stands at 8.15. In other words for every 100,000 comScore shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8150 shares are currently held short.

However comScore's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of comScore shares, or, against the total number of tradable comScore shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case comScore's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 comScore shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0662% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable comScore shares, roughly 66 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 comScore.
