There are currently 12.3 million Hecla Mining Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Hecla Mining Company's "short interest". This figure is 28.4% up from 9.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hecla Mining Company shares can be evaluated.
Hecla Mining Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hecla Mining Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hecla Mining Company shares traded daily (recently around 7.4 million). Hecla Mining Company's SIR currently stands at 1.66. In other words for every 100,000 Hecla Mining Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1660 shares are currently held short.
However Hecla Mining Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hecla Mining Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hecla Mining Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hecla Mining Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hecla Mining Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0263% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hecla Mining Company 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 Hecla Mining Company.
