Shorting Limoneira Company shares

There are currently 599,015 Limoneira Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Limoneira Company's "short interest". This figure is 4.7% up from 572,326 last month.

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

Limoneira Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Limoneira Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Limoneira Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Limoneira Company shares traded daily (recently around 53435.771632471). Limoneira Company's SIR currently stands at 11.21. In other words for every 100,000 Limoneira Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11210 shares are currently held short.

However Limoneira Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Limoneira Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Limoneira Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Limoneira Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Limoneira Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.039% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Limoneira Company shares, roughly 39 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 Limoneira Company.
