There are currently 5.9 million Green Plains shares held short by investors – that's known as Green Plains's "short interest". This figure is 3.2% down from 6.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Green Plains shares can be evaluated.
Green Plains's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Green Plains shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Green Plains shares traded daily (recently around 493514.94156928). Green Plains's SIR currently stands at 11.98. In other words for every 100,000 Green Plains shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11980 shares are currently held short.
However Green Plains's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Green Plains shares, or, against the total number of tradable Green Plains shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Green Plains's short interest could be expressed as 0.17% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Green Plains shares in existence, roughly 170 shares are currently held short) or 0.2359% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Green Plains shares, roughly 236 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Green Plains.
