Shorting Forum Energy Technologies shares

There are currently 371,523 Forum Energy Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Forum Energy Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 14.2% up from 325,206 last month.

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

Forum Energy Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Forum Energy Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Forum Energy Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Forum Energy Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 27892.117117117). Forum Energy Technologies's SIR currently stands at 13.32. In other words for every 100,000 Forum Energy Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13320 shares are currently held short.

However Forum Energy Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Forum Energy Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Forum Energy Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Forum Energy Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Forum Energy Technologies shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0829% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Forum Energy Technologies shares, roughly 83 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 Forum Energy Technologies.

However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Forum Energy Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Forum Energy Technologies's share price.
