There are currently 1.0 million Echo Global Logistics shares held short by investors – that's known as Echo Global Logistics's "short interest". This figure is 7% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Echo Global Logistics shares can be evaluated.
Echo Global Logistics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Echo Global Logistics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Echo Global Logistics shares traded daily (recently around 137953.15068493). Echo Global Logistics's SIR currently stands at 7.3. In other words for every 100,000 Echo Global Logistics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7300 shares are currently held short.
However Echo Global Logistics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Echo Global Logistics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Echo Global Logistics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Echo Global Logistics's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Echo Global Logistics shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.047% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Echo Global Logistics shares, roughly 47 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 Echo Global Logistics.
