Shorting Fiesta Restaurant Group shares

There are currently 1.6 million Fiesta Restaurant Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Fiesta Restaurant Group's "short interest". This figure is 10.1% down from 1.8 million last month.

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

Fiesta Restaurant Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fiesta Restaurant Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fiesta Restaurant Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fiesta Restaurant Group shares traded daily (recently around 127340.90548054). Fiesta Restaurant Group's SIR currently stands at 12.59. In other words for every 100,000 Fiesta Restaurant Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12590 shares are currently held short.

However Fiesta Restaurant Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fiesta Restaurant Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fiesta Restaurant Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fiesta Restaurant Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fiesta Restaurant Group shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1129% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fiesta Restaurant Group shares, roughly 113 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Fiesta Restaurant Group.
