Shorting Manchester United shares

There are currently 1.1 million Manchester United shares held short by investors – that's known as Manchester United's "short interest". This figure is 16.4% up from 914,850 last month.

Manchester United's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Manchester United's SIR currently stands at 3.44. In other words for every 100,000 Manchester United shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3440 shares are currently held short.

However Manchester United's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Manchester United shares, or, against the total number of tradable Manchester United shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Manchester United's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Manchester United shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0272% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Manchester United shares, roughly 27 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 Manchester United.
