Shorting Gladstone Investment Corporation shares

There are currently 545,212 Gladstone Investment Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Gladstone Investment Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 61.1% up from 338,381 last month.

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

Gladstone Investment Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Gladstone Investment Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gladstone Investment Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gladstone Investment Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 174189.13738019). Gladstone Investment Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.13. In other words for every 100,000 Gladstone Investment Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3130 shares are currently held short.

However Gladstone Investment Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gladstone Investment Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gladstone Investment Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gladstone Investment Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gladstone Investment Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0169% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gladstone Investment Corporation shares, roughly 17 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 Gladstone Investment Corporation.
