Shorting Designer Brands shares
There are currently 7.7 million Designer Brands shares held short by investors – that's known as Designer Brands's "short interest". This figure is 25.3% up from 6.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Designer Brands shares can be evaluated.
Designer Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Designer Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Designer Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Designer Brands shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Designer Brands's SIR currently stands at 6.34. In other words for every 100,000 Designer Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6340 shares are currently held short.
However Designer Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Designer Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Designer Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Designer Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Designer Brands shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1295% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Designer Brands shares, roughly 130 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 Designer Brands.

Have Designer Brands's shares ever split?
Designer Brands's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 November 2013. 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 Designer Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Designer Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Designer Brands's share price.
Designer Brands share price volatility
