Shorting Gulf Island Fabrication shares

There are currently 71,200 Gulf Island Fabrication shares held short by investors – that's known as Gulf Island Fabrication's "short interest". This figure is 19.1% down from 88,052 last month.

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

Gulf Island Fabrication's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Gulf Island Fabrication's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gulf Island Fabrication shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gulf Island Fabrication shares traded daily (recently around 26766.917293233). Gulf Island Fabrication's SIR currently stands at 2.66. In other words for every 100,000 Gulf Island Fabrication shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2660 shares are currently held short.

However Gulf Island Fabrication's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gulf Island Fabrication shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gulf Island Fabrication shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gulf Island Fabrication's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gulf Island Fabrication shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0053% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gulf Island Fabrication shares, roughly 5 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 Gulf Island Fabrication.
