Shorting GTT Communications shares

There are currently 10.4 million GTT Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as GTT Communications's "short interest". This figure is 10.9% down from 11.6 million last month.

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

GTT Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

GTT Communications's SIR currently stands at 18.14. In other words for every 100,000 GTT Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 18140 shares are currently held short.

However GTT Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GTT Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable GTT Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GTT Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GTT Communications shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.2151% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GTT Communications shares, roughly 215 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 GTT Communications.
