Shorting India Globalization Capital shares

There are currently 2.0 million India Globalization Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as India Globalization Capital's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% up from 2.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting India Globalization Capital shares can be evaluated.

India Globalization Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

India Globalization Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of India Globalization Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of India Globalization Capital shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). India Globalization Capital's SIR currently stands at 0.89. In other words for every 100,000 India Globalization Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 890 shares are currently held short.

However India Globalization Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of India Globalization Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable India Globalization Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case India Globalization Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 India Globalization Capital shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0565% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable India Globalization Capital shares, roughly 57 shares are currently held short).
