Shorting MDC Partners shares

MDC Partners's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MDC Partners's SIR currently stands at 3.65. In other words for every 100,000 MDC Partners shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3650 shares are currently held short.

However MDC Partners's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MDC Partners shares, or, against the total number of tradable MDC Partners shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MDC Partners's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MDC Partners shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0602% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MDC Partners shares, roughly 60 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 MDC Partners.
