TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 17.1 million First Majestic Silver shares held short by investors – that's known as First Majestic Silver's "short interest". This figure is 9.5% down from 18.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Majestic Silver shares can be evaluated.
First Majestic Silver's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Majestic Silver shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Majestic Silver shares traded daily (recently around 3.7 million). First Majestic Silver's SIR currently stands at 4.56. In other words for every 100,000 First Majestic Silver shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4560 shares are currently held short.
However First Majestic Silver's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Majestic Silver shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Majestic Silver shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Majestic Silver's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Majestic Silver shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0785% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Majestic Silver shares, roughly 79 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 First Majestic Silver.
