Shorting Hertz Global shares

There are currently 35.8 million Hertz Global shares held short by investors – that's known as Hertz Global's "short interest". This figure is 19.3% up from 30.0 million last month.

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

Hertz Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Hertz Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hertz Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hertz Global shares traded daily (recently around 8.9 million). Hertz Global's SIR currently stands at 4.01. In other words for every 100,000 Hertz Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4010 shares are currently held short.

However Hertz Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hertz Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hertz Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hertz Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.23% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hertz Global shares in existence, roughly 230 shares are currently held short) or 0.3563% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hertz Global shares, roughly 356 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 Hertz Global.

Have Hertz Global's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hertz Global shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 13.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hertz Global shares which in turn could have impacted Hertz Global's share price.

Hertz Global share price volatility

This would suggest that Hertz Global's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
