Shorting CVR Energy shares

There are currently 2.0 million CVR Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as CVR Energy's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% up from 1.9 million last month.

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

CVR Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CVR Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CVR Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CVR Energy shares traded daily (recently around 841544.82758621). CVR Energy's SIR currently stands at 2.32. In other words for every 100,000 CVR Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2320 shares are currently held short.

However CVR Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CVR Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable CVR Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CVR Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CVR Energy shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0666% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CVR Energy shares, roughly 67 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 CVR Energy.
