Shorting Kraton Corporation shares

There are currently 1.9 million Kraton Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Kraton Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 24.7% up from 1.5 million last month.

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

Kraton Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kraton Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kraton Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kraton Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Kraton Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.7. In other words for every 100,000 Kraton Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1700 shares are currently held short.

However Kraton Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kraton Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kraton Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kraton Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kraton Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0703% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kraton Corporation shares, roughly 70 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 Kraton Corporation.
