Shorting IAMGOLD Corporation shares

There are currently 6.2 million IAMGOLD Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as IAMGOLD Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 78.2% up from 3.5 million last month.

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

IAMGOLD Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

IAMGOLD Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IAMGOLD Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IAMGOLD Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 4.6 million). IAMGOLD Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.35. In other words for every 100,000 IAMGOLD Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1350 shares are currently held short.

However IAMGOLD Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IAMGOLD Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable IAMGOLD Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IAMGOLD Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IAMGOLD Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IAMGOLD Corporation shares, roughly 0 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 IAMGOLD Corporation.
