Shorting Douglas Emmett shares

There are currently 8.9 million Douglas Emmett shares held short by investors – that's known as Douglas Emmett's "short interest". This figure is 21.5% up from 7.4 million last month.

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

Douglas Emmett's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Douglas Emmett's SIR currently stands at 12.25. In other words for every 100,000 Douglas Emmett shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12250 shares are currently held short.

However Douglas Emmett's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Douglas Emmett shares, or, against the total number of tradable Douglas Emmett shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Douglas Emmett's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Douglas Emmett shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0531% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Douglas Emmett shares, roughly 53 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Douglas Emmett.
