There are currently 236,842 International General Insurance shares held short by investors – that's known as International General Insurance's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% down from 240,158 last month.

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

International General Insurance's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However International General Insurance's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of International General Insurance shares, or, against the total number of tradable International General Insurance shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case International General Insurance's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 International General Insurance shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0119% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable International General Insurance shares, roughly 12 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against International General Insurance.
