Shorting MRC Global shares

There are currently 3.8 million MRC Global shares held short by investors – that's known as MRC Global's "short interest". This figure is 9.1% down from 4.2 million last month.

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

MRC Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MRC Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MRC Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MRC Global shares traded daily (recently around 597758.24175824). MRC Global's SIR currently stands at 6.37. In other words for every 100,000 MRC Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6370 shares are currently held short.

However MRC Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MRC Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable MRC Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MRC Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MRC Global shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.095% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MRC Global shares, roughly 95 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 MRC Global.
