Shorting First Majestic Silver shares

There are currently 16.7 million First Majestic Silver shares held short by investors – that's known as First Majestic Silver's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% down from 16.9 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)

First Majestic Silver's SIR currently stands at 4.58. In other words for every 100,000 First Majestic Silver shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4580 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 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Majestic Silver shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Majestic Silver shares, roughly 0 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.
