There are currently 29.1 million Kosmos Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Kosmos Energy's "short interest". This figure is 9.3% up from 26.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kosmos Energy shares can be evaluated.
Kosmos Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kosmos Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kosmos Energy shares traded daily (recently around 12.0 million). Kosmos Energy's SIR currently stands at 2.42. In other words for every 100,000 Kosmos Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2420 shares are currently held short.
However Kosmos Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kosmos Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kosmos Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kosmos Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kosmos Energy shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0839% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kosmos Energy shares, roughly 84 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 Kosmos Energy.
