There are currently 40,678 Delta Apparel shares held short by investors – that's known as Delta Apparel's "short interest". This figure is 0% up from 40,671 last month.

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

Delta Apparel's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Delta Apparel's SIR currently stands at 2.52. In other words for every 100,000 Delta Apparel shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2520 shares are currently held short.

However Delta Apparel's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Delta Apparel shares, or, against the total number of tradable Delta Apparel shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Delta Apparel's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Delta Apparel shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0069% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Delta Apparel shares, roughly 7 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 Delta Apparel.

Have Delta Apparel's shares ever split?

Delta Apparel's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 May 2005. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Delta Apparel shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Delta Apparel shares which in turn could have impacted Delta Apparel's share price.

This would suggest that Delta Apparel's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
