Shorting Mission Produce shares

There are currently 1.3 million Mission Produce shares held short by investors – that's known as Mission Produce's "short interest". This figure is 9.7% up from 1.1 million last month.

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

Mission Produce's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Mission Produce's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mission Produce shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mission Produce shares traded daily (recently around 240313.40996169). Mission Produce's SIR currently stands at 5.22. In other words for every 100,000 Mission Produce shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5220 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Mission Produce's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Mission Produce's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mission Produce shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mission Produce shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mission Produce's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mission Produce shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0332% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mission Produce shares, roughly 33 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 Mission Produce.
