Shorting Infinera Corporation shares

There are currently 26.8 million Infinera Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Infinera Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 13.1% up from 23.7 million last month.

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

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

Infinera Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Infinera Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Infinera Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3.4 million). Infinera Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.96. In other words for every 100,000 Infinera Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7960 shares are currently held short.

However Infinera Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Infinera Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Infinera Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Infinera Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Infinera Corporation shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1955% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Infinera Corporation shares, roughly 196 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 Infinera Corporation.
