Shorting NCR Corporation shares

There are currently 7.7 million NCR Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as NCR Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% up from 7.6 million last month.

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

NCR Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NCR Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NCR Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NCR Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). NCR Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.15. In other words for every 100,000 NCR Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7150 shares are currently held short.

However NCR Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NCR Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable NCR Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NCR Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NCR Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0597% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NCR Corporation shares, roughly 60 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 NCR Corporation.
