Shorting FTS International shares

There are currently 154,962 FTS International shares held short by investors – that's known as FTS International's "short interest". This figure is 40.1% down from 258,663 last month.

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

FTS International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

FTS International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FTS International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FTS International shares traded daily (recently around 154962). FTS International's SIR currently stands at 1. In other words for every 100,000 FTS International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1000 shares are currently held short.

However FTS International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FTS International shares, or, against the total number of tradable FTS International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FTS International's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FTS International shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.1009% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FTS International shares, roughly 101 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 FTS International.

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