Shorting FreightCar America shares
There are currently 1.0 million FreightCar America shares held short by investors – that's known as FreightCar America's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FreightCar America shares can be evaluated.
FreightCar America's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
FreightCar America's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FreightCar America shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FreightCar America shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). FreightCar America's SIR currently stands at 0.66. In other words for every 100,000 FreightCar America shares traded daily on the market, roughly 660 shares are currently held short.
However FreightCar America's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FreightCar America shares, or, against the total number of tradable FreightCar America shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FreightCar America's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FreightCar America shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0871% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FreightCar America shares, roughly 87 shares are currently held short).
