Shorting HF Foods Group shares

There are currently 3.3 million HF Foods Group shares held short by investors – that's known as HF Foods Group's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% down from 3.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting HF Foods Group shares can be evaluated.

HF Foods Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

HF Foods Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HF Foods Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HF Foods Group shares traded daily (recently around 126056.5301391). HF Foods Group's SIR currently stands at 25.88. In other words for every 100,000 HF Foods Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 25880 shares are currently held short.

However HF Foods Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HF Foods Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable HF Foods Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HF Foods Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HF Foods Group shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0914% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HF Foods Group shares, roughly 91 shares are currently held short).
