Shorting Earthstone Energy shares

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

Earthstone Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Earthstone Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Earthstone Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Earthstone Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Earthstone Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Earthstone Energy shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0729% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Earthstone Energy shares, roughly 73 shares are currently held short).
