Shorting Genius Brands International shares

There are currently 29.7 million Genius Brands International shares held short by investors – that's known as Genius Brands International's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% down from 30.5 million last month.

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

Genius Brands International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Genius Brands International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genius Brands International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genius Brands International shares traded daily (recently around 34.5 million). Genius Brands International's SIR currently stands at 0.86. In other words for every 100,000 Genius Brands International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 860 shares are currently held short.

However Genius Brands International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genius Brands International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genius Brands International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genius Brands International's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genius Brands International shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1226% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genius Brands International shares, roughly 123 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 Genius Brands International.
