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

Hibbett Sports's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Hibbett Sports's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hibbett Sports shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hibbett Sports shares traded daily (recently around 654951.42378559). Hibbett Sports's SIR currently stands at 5.97. In other words for every 100,000 Hibbett Sports shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5970 shares are currently held short.

However Hibbett Sports's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hibbett Sports shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hibbett Sports shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hibbett Sports's short interest could be expressed as 0.24% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hibbett Sports shares in existence, roughly 240 shares are currently held short) or 0.333% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hibbett Sports shares, roughly 333 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Hibbett Sports.
