Shorting Dorian LPG shares

There are currently 2.0 million Dorian LPG shares held short by investors – that's known as Dorian LPG's "short interest". This figure is 17.2% down from 2.4 million last month.

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

Dorian LPG's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dorian LPG's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dorian LPG shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dorian LPG shares traded daily (recently around 593804.51807229). Dorian LPG's SIR currently stands at 3.32. In other words for every 100,000 Dorian LPG shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3320 shares are currently held short.

However Dorian LPG's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dorian LPG shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dorian LPG shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dorian LPG's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dorian LPG shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0681% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dorian LPG shares, roughly 68 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 Dorian LPG.
