Shorting Express shares

There are currently 5.9 million Express shares held short by investors – that's known as Express's "short interest". This figure is 17.9% down from 7.2 million last month.

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

Express's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Express's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Express shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Express shares traded daily (recently around 49.4 million). Express's SIR currently stands at 0.12. In other words for every 100,000 Express shares traded daily on the market, roughly 120 shares are currently held short.

However Express's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Express shares, or, against the total number of tradable Express shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Express's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Express shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1108% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Express shares, roughly 111 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 Express.
