There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Genesis Energy L-P shares can be evaluated.

Genesis Energy L-P's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Genesis Energy L-P's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genesis Energy L-P shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genesis Energy L-P shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Genesis Energy L-P's SIR currently stands at 1.35. In other words for every 100,000 Genesis Energy L-P shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1350 shares are currently held short.

However Genesis Energy L-P's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genesis Energy L-P shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genesis Energy L-P shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genesis Energy L-P's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genesis Energy L-P shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0215% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genesis Energy L-P shares, roughly 22 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 Genesis Energy L-P.

However, indirectly, the new 10% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Genesis Energy L-P shares which in turn could have impacted Genesis Energy L-P's share price.
