Shorting Frequency Electronics shares

There are currently 6,394 Frequency Electronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Frequency Electronics's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 6,326 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Frequency Electronics shares can be evaluated.

Frequency Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Frequency Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Frequency Electronics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Frequency Electronics shares traded daily (recently around 9134.2857142857). Frequency Electronics's SIR currently stands at 0.7. In other words for every 100,000 Frequency Electronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 700 shares are currently held short.

However Frequency Electronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Frequency Electronics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Frequency Electronics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Frequency Electronics's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Frequency Electronics shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0011% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Frequency Electronics shares, roughly 1 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 Frequency Electronics.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Frequency Electronics shares which in turn could have impacted Frequency Electronics's share price.
