Shorting InnerWorkings shares

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

InnerWorkings's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In this case InnerWorkings's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 InnerWorkings shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0316% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable InnerWorkings shares, roughly 32 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 InnerWorkings.
