Shorting Ferroglobe shares

There are currently 2.9 million Ferroglobe shares held short by investors – that's known as Ferroglobe's "short interest". This figure is 90.9% up from 1.5 million last month.

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

Ferroglobe's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ferroglobe's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ferroglobe shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ferroglobe shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Ferroglobe's SIR currently stands at 2.19. In other words for every 100,000 Ferroglobe shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2190 shares are currently held short.

However Ferroglobe's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ferroglobe shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ferroglobe shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ferroglobe's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ferroglobe shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0371% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ferroglobe shares, roughly 37 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 Ferroglobe.
