Shorting Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.95. In other words for every 100,000 Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6950 shares are currently held short.

However Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1723% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation shares, roughly 172 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation.
