Shorting Maxar Technologies shares

There are currently 5.5 million Maxar Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Maxar Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 11.7% down from 6.2 million last month.

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

Maxar Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Maxar Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Maxar Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Maxar Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 619104.64326161). Maxar Technologies's SIR currently stands at 8.83. In other words for every 100,000 Maxar Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8830 shares are currently held short.

However Maxar Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Maxar Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Maxar Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Maxar Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Maxar Technologies shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0772% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Maxar Technologies shares, roughly 77 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 Maxar Technologies.
