Shorting Empire State Realty Trust shares

There are currently 9.8 million Empire State Realty Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Empire State Realty Trust's "short interest". This figure is 4.1% down from 10.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Empire State Realty Trust shares can be evaluated.

Empire State Realty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Empire State Realty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Empire State Realty Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Empire State Realty Trust shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Empire State Realty Trust's SIR currently stands at 6.92. In other words for every 100,000 Empire State Realty Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6920 shares are currently held short.

However Empire State Realty Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Empire State Realty Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Empire State Realty Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Empire State Realty Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Empire State Realty Trust shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0832% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Empire State Realty Trust shares, roughly 83 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 Empire State Realty Trust.
