Shorting JAlexanders shares

There are currently 121,172 JAlexanders shares held short by investors – that's known as JAlexanders's "short interest". This figure is 16.3% up from 104,216 last month.

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

JAlexanders's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

JAlexanders's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of JAlexanders shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of JAlexanders shares traded daily (recently around 60586). JAlexanders's SIR currently stands at 2. In other words for every 100,000 JAlexanders shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2000 shares are currently held short.

However JAlexanders's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of JAlexanders shares, or, against the total number of tradable JAlexanders shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case JAlexanders's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 JAlexanders shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0094% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable JAlexanders shares, roughly 9 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 JAlexanders.
