H-and-E Equipment Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

H-and-E Equipment Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of H-and-E Equipment Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of H-and-E Equipment Services shares traded daily (recently around 193463.37349398).

However H-and-E Equipment Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of H-and-E Equipment Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable H-and-E Equipment Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case H-and-E Equipment Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 H-and-E Equipment Services shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0256% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable H-and-E Equipment Services shares, roughly 26 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 H-and-E Equipment Services.
