Shorting Exela Technologies shares

There are currently 12.8 million Exela Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Exela Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 68.6% up from 7.6 million last month.

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

Exela Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Exela Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Exela Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Exela Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 20.3 million). Exela Technologies's SIR currently stands at 0.63. In other words for every 100,000 Exela Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 630 shares are currently held short.

However Exela Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Exela Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Exela Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Exela Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Exela Technologies shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0968% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Exela Technologies shares, roughly 97 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 Exela Technologies.
