Shorting InterContinental Hotels Group shares

There are currently 138,282 InterContinental Hotels Group shares held short by investors – that's known as InterContinental Hotels Group's "short interest". This figure is 43% down from 242,704 last month.

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

InterContinental Hotels Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

InterContinental Hotels Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of InterContinental Hotels Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of InterContinental Hotels Group shares traded daily (recently around 85359.259259259). InterContinental Hotels Group's SIR currently stands at 1.62. In other words for every 100,000 InterContinental Hotels Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1620 shares are currently held short.

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