Shorting Hi-Crush shares

There are currently 5.7 million Hi-Crush shares held short by investors – that's known as Hi-Crush's "short interest". This figure is 25.1% down from 7.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hi-Crush shares can be evaluated.

Hi-Crush's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Hi-Crush's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hi-Crush shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hi-Crush shares traded daily (recently around 4.3 million). Hi-Crush's SIR currently stands at 1.33. In other words for every 100,000 Hi-Crush shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1330 shares are currently held short.

However Hi-Crush's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hi-Crush shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hi-Crush shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hi-Crush's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hi-Crush shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0599% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hi-Crush shares, roughly 60 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 Hi-Crush.
