Shorting Driven Brands shares

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

Driven Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Driven Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Driven Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Driven Brands shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Driven Brands's SIR currently stands at 0.97. In other words for every 100,000 Driven Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 970 shares are currently held short.

However Driven Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Driven Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Driven Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Driven Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Driven Brands shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0086% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Driven Brands shares, roughly 9 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 Driven Brands.
