Shorting Crescent Point Energy shares

There are currently 14.1 million Crescent Point Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Crescent Point Energy's "short interest". This figure is 16.8% down from 17.0 million last month.

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

Crescent Point Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Crescent Point Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Crescent Point Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Crescent Point Energy shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million).

However Crescent Point Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Crescent Point Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Crescent Point Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Crescent Point Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Crescent Point Energy shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Crescent Point Energy shares, roughly 0 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 Crescent Point Energy.
