Shorting Freshpet shares

There are currently 1.0 million Freshpet shares held short by investors – that's known as Freshpet's "short interest". This figure is 4.9% down from 1.1 million last month.

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

Freshpet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Freshpet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Freshpet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Freshpet shares traded daily (recently around 307169.04761905). Freshpet's SIR currently stands at 3.36. In other words for every 100,000 Freshpet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3360 shares are currently held short.

However Freshpet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Freshpet shares, or, against the total number of tradable Freshpet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Freshpet's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Freshpet shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.025% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Freshpet shares, roughly 25 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 Freshpet.
