Shorting GrowGeneration shares

There are currently 5.4 million GrowGeneration shares held short by investors – that's known as GrowGeneration's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% down from 6.1 million last month.

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

GrowGeneration's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

GrowGeneration's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GrowGeneration shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GrowGeneration shares traded daily (recently around 4.0 million). GrowGeneration's SIR currently stands at 1.34. In other words for every 100,000 GrowGeneration shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1340 shares are currently held short.

However GrowGeneration's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GrowGeneration shares, or, against the total number of tradable GrowGeneration shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GrowGeneration's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GrowGeneration shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1268% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GrowGeneration shares, roughly 127 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 GrowGeneration.
