Shorting National Holdings Corporation shares

There are currently 40,185 National Holdings Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as National Holdings Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 16.7% down from 48,239 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting National Holdings Corporation shares can be evaluated.

National Holdings Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

National Holdings Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of National Holdings Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of National Holdings Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 44650). National Holdings Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.9. In other words for every 100,000 National Holdings Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 900 shares are currently held short.

However National Holdings Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of National Holdings Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable National Holdings Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case National Holdings Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 National Holdings Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.01% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable National Holdings Corporation shares, roughly 10 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 National Holdings Corporation.

However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for National Holdings Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted National Holdings Corporation's share price.
