Shorting Harmony Gold Mining Company shares

There are currently 9.5 million Harmony Gold Mining Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Harmony Gold Mining Company's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% down from 10.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Harmony Gold Mining Company shares can be evaluated.

Harmony Gold Mining Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Harmony Gold Mining Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Harmony Gold Mining Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Harmony Gold Mining Company shares traded daily (recently around 5.9 million). Harmony Gold Mining Company's SIR currently stands at 1.6. In other words for every 100,000 Harmony Gold Mining Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1600 shares are currently held short.

However Harmony Gold Mining Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Harmony Gold Mining Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Harmony Gold Mining Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Harmony Gold Mining Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Harmony Gold Mining Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Harmony Gold Mining Company shares, roughly 0 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 Harmony Gold Mining Company.
