Shorting Nathans Famous shares

There are currently 35,890 Nathans Famous shares held short by investors – that's known as Nathans Famous's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% down from 35,997 last month.

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

Nathans Famous's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Nathans Famous's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nathans Famous shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nathans Famous shares traded daily (recently around 7178). Nathans Famous's SIR currently stands at 5. In other words for every 100,000 Nathans Famous shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5000 shares are currently held short.

However Nathans Famous's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nathans Famous shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nathans Famous shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nathans Famous's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nathans Famous shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0152% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nathans Famous shares, roughly 15 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 Nathans Famous.
