There are currently 1.2 million Mesa Air Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Mesa Air Group's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% down from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Mesa Air Group shares can be evaluated.
Mesa Air Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mesa Air Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mesa Air Group shares traded daily (recently around 404130.20134228). Mesa Air Group's SIR currently stands at 2.98. In other words for every 100,000 Mesa Air Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2980 shares are currently held short.
However Mesa Air Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mesa Air Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mesa Air Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mesa Air Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mesa Air Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0353% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mesa Air Group shares, roughly 35 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 Mesa Air Group.
