Shorting LSB Industries shares

There are currently 407,643 LSB Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as LSB Industries's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% down from 460,762 last month.

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

LSB Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LSB Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LSB Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LSB Industries shares traded daily (recently around 156785.76923077). LSB Industries's SIR currently stands at 2.6. In other words for every 100,000 LSB Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2600 shares are currently held short.

However LSB Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LSB Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable LSB Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LSB Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LSB Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0203% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LSB Industries shares, roughly 20 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 LSB Industries.

However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for LSB Industries shares which in turn could have impacted LSB Industries's share price.
