Shorting Golar LNG shares

There are currently 5.1 million Golar LNG shares held short by investors – that's known as Golar LNG's "short interest". This figure is 4.5% down from 5.3 million last month.

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

Golar LNG's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Golar LNG's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Golar LNG shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Golar LNG shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Golar LNG's SIR currently stands at 2.96. In other words for every 100,000 Golar LNG shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2960 shares are currently held short.

However Golar LNG's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Golar LNG shares, or, against the total number of tradable Golar LNG shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Golar LNG's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Golar LNG shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0635% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Golar LNG shares, roughly 64 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 Golar LNG.
