Shorting Key Energy Services shares

There are currently 1.6 million Key Energy Services shares held short by investors – that's known as Key Energy Services's "short interest". This figure is 8.3% up from 1.5 million last month.

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

Key Energy Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Key Energy Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Key Energy Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Key Energy Services shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Key Energy Services's SIR currently stands at 1.53. In other words for every 100,000 Key Energy Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1530 shares are currently held short.

However Key Energy Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Key Energy Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Key Energy Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Key Energy Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Key Energy Services shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.2127% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Key Energy Services shares, roughly 213 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 Key Energy Services.
